Quality & Patient Safety

In 2002 the Hospital Quality Alliance (HQA) was created to promote reporting on the quality of care provided by hospitals. The HQA measures were reported on a web site called Hospital Compare. Since this time quality measures that are reported to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has evolved based on evidence based research. Measures such as patient experience and processes of care are reported to CMS and are still available to the public through Hospital Compare.
