New HQI Data Analytics Platform Offers Consolidated Data, Benchmarking Tools
At October’s annual conference, HQI launched the Hospital Quality
Improvement Platform — a system that consolidates disparate
data sources into a single, statewide platform. Its reports and
benchmarking tools fuel improvement with intelligence, providing
hospital leaders with invaluable quality performance analytics.
To date, 339 hospitals have been contacted for participation; of
those, 185 responded favorably. Eighty hospitals are conducting
an internal level review, while four have already executed
agreements and are submitting data.
Our secure, web-based platform provides risk-adjusted episode
quality measures for conditions most affected by hospital quality
initiatives. Through the platform, hospitals gain access to
clinically rich, timely reports to help easily identify a
hospital’s opportunities for improvement and areas for focus.
Platform features include:
Access to hospital performance data from various sources,
integrated into a centralized platform
Tools to understand your hospital’s quality performance and
compare to statewide benchmarks and peers
An intuitive interface that provides a window into
inpatient and emergency quality indicators
Secure data within HIPAA-qualified encrypted data
The Hospital Quality Improvement Platform is available free of
charge to all California Hospital Association members.
