Updated Quality Transparency Dashboards Paused Until 3rd Quarter of 2020
Due to increased hospital workload and delays in data
reporting as a result of the
COVID-19 pandemic, HQI is delaying the
release of updated Quality Transparency Dashboards until
the third quarter of 2020.
HQI, in cooperation with the Patient Safety Movement Foundation
and the California Hospital Association (CHA), creates and
distributes quarterly dashboards of publicly available quality
data for each CHA acute-care member hospital.
These model dashboards currently provide information on eight
Five outcome measures:
Central Line-Associated Blood Stream Infection
Consumer-level explanations of each measure are
provided. Hospitals may also add optional comments about
performance and initiatives at that hospital.
Dashboards are emailed quarterly to hospital leaders and
quality/patient safety teams. HQI encourages each hospital to
publish the information in the dashboard to its public-facing
website to increase hospital quality transparency.
Our goal is to have a Quality Transparency Dashboard (or its
equivalent) published on every California hospital’s
website. Currently, 253 (74.6%) hospitals have posted the
dashboard or equivalent information, 75 (22.1%) hospitals
are in progress to post, and 11 (3.2%) hospitals are not
engaged in the transparency effort.
