3 3 Quality Health Indicators  The Quality Health Indicator (QHi) web site was developed through the Kansas Hospital Association, KHA, and KRHOP the Kansas Rural Health Options Project to facilitate a benchmarking project for rural Kansas hospitals.  The goal of QHi is to provide hospitals an economical instrument to evaluate internal processes of care and to seek ways to improve practices by comparing specific measures of quality with like hospitals.  Using QHi as a tool, regional networks of hospitals and individual facilities can select from a library of indicators to determine which measures meet their unique needs.

4 4 Quality Health Indicators  More than 700 users in over 200 Critical Access and other small rural hospitals in Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Wyoming use QHi as a data collection and benchmarking tool.  As a user-driven multi-state project, QHi is well-positioned to serve as a significant repository of information on quality of care and performance in rural hospitals nationwide.

75 75 How we use the data Return to Main Menu

76 76  I print a copy of the graphs and take it to the board for discussion. They appreciate seeing in color how we compare to other CAHs in KS as well as others in the USA.  On a quarterly basis I am giving a copy of the bar graphs to our Board Members at their meeting.  I give the Quality Committee a copy of the quality reports on a quarterly basis.  We track and present our indicators monthly and are usually above the norm. On the occasions when we fall below, it prompts us to review processes to seek improvements.  If we fall below expectations, we look for ways to improve and then report back to the board in the next quarter.  We like the Days in AR report. This is our only source for comparative information on this measure. Quality Health Indicators What do we do with the data? A few comments from our hospitals…
