2 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.
3 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.
Why participate in a National Benchmarking Project? Diverse perspectives Strength in numbers Communication 4 Quality Health Indicators

15 Users navigate through the suite of resources in the PiHQ Portal by using blue links across the top. Hover text provides a brief description of each resource.
16 Users navigate through QHi by clicking the main menu and sub-menu options Click Administration to view Hospital Profile page
17 Each hospital completes a Hospital Profile that defines their facility. This information is used to create peer groups.
18 All hospitals collect the QHi Core Measure Set States and Networks can create customized measure sets for their hospitals
19 Hospitals select from over 90 additional measures to collect. Number of hospitals collecting each measure is provided Question mark icons “?” display definitions throughout the site.
20 Data elements populate the data entry screen based on measures selected in the Hospital Profile. Users key in monthly aggregate data Data is pulled into the database when the Activate data for reporting box is checked Reports are available immediately upon data activation
21 The Core Measures Dashboard provides comparison data for the eight QHi Core Measures Dashboard data is calculated using a consecutive three-month summing average
22 Dashboard Options include a table view, graph view and PDF conversion. The 3-month time frame can be adjusted All reports in QHi can be scheduled to run and then emailed as PDF attachments to selected recipients.
23 Users create unlimited customized dashboards based on the measures of their choice.
24 There are 6 categories of reports: 1.Clinical Quality 2.Employees 3.Financial Operational 4.Hospital Characteristics 5.Patient Satisfaction 6.System The measures being collected by the hospital are listed in each category
25 This reporting ‘wizard’ assists in the creation of customized reports. Users select from default peer groups Select date range. Rolling dates are used when creating scheduled reports.
26 Users create an optional peer group based on information pulled from each Hospitals Profile.
27 Line graphs, Bar graphs and tables are options for display. Line Graphs, Bar Graphs and Tables are options for display All reports can be exported to Excel for easy manipulation
28 Note that peer hospitals are not identified by name Envelope icons allow users to contact identified best practice hospitals directly.
29 Training and educational materials are available for download on the Help page
30 Users navigate through the suite of resources in the PiHQ Portal by using blue links across the top.
31 The intent of the PiHQ Portal is to provide a single resource for rural hospitals that will support their quality initiatives. All QHi, HSI and SQSS users have access to the PiHQ search engine.
32 Results are pulled from all Portal resources. Future enhancements will allow users to pull from resources outside of PiHQ as well.
33 All users have access to the Resource Library
34 The Calendar provides registration information for upcoming Quality Training Sessions
35 Users with access to the application are directed to the home page, without additional log in.
36 HSI is a patient satisfaction survey and reporting application developed by Darlene Bainbridge and Associates. Hospitals participating in both QHi and HSI can auto-upload data directly from HSI into QHi for additional reporting and benchmarking opportunities.
37 Developed by Darlene Bainbridge and Associates, SQSS is a calendar system that facilitates risk management, patient safety and overall quality initiatives in small hospitals.
Quality Health Indicators All QHi users have access to quality education sessions presented by Darlene Bainbridge. These monthly webinars are designed to teach hospitals how to use the data they pull from QHi and how to implement initiatives with their facilities to improve quality performance. For those new to the project or just in need of a refresher, Back to Basics Training sessions conducted by Sally Perkins, are offered throughout the year. Upcoming Calls and Training Webinars QHi March Quality Education Session Tuesday, March 8 from 2:00 to 3:30 Central Time Darlene Bainbridge will present on “Performance Improvement” Back to Basics Training Wednesday, April 13 from 2:00 to 3:00 Central Time
39 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…
