HQI Previews One-Stop Source for Quality Intelligence

Over 400 hospitals across California will have the opportunity to accelerate quality improvement across the state. California’s Hospital Quality Institute (HQI), a national leader in addressing quality improvement issues to improve care, will be starting its first pilot phase of the Hospital Quality Intelligence Initiative (HQI2) on the ArborMetrix platform. HQI2 will be a one-stop source for all California hospitals to obtain timely, actionable intelligence to drive their quality improvement efforts.

As a first step, this report looks at how hospital HCAHPS response rates and mean top-box scores vary across regions, and how response rates and mean top-box scores are related to each other across California hospitals.
