AHRQ Quality Indicators™ Toolkit for Hospitals


Description

This toolkit is designed to help hospitals understand the Quality Indicators (QIs) from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), and support the use of QIs to successfully improve quality and patient safety. The toolkit is a general guide to using improvement methods, with a particular focus on the QIs.

The AHRQ QIs use hospital administrative data to assess the quality of care provided, identify areas of concern in need of further investigation, and monitor progress over time. This toolkit focuses on the 17 Patient Safety Indicators (PSIs) and the 28 Inpatient Quality Indicators (IQIs).
