Hospital Quality and Safety

PW_B140403

What is the score on hospital quality?

Find out with the Quality-In-Sights® Hospital Incentive Program (Q-HIP®).  
Q-HIP is an award-winning program that ties hospital payments to the quality of patient care. The goal of the program is to help all patients get the best health care.  
Hospitals are reviewed in three areas: 
Patient safety – This area looks at how the hospital’s patient care processes align with nationally accepted best practices.
Health outcomes – This area looks at how the results of a patient’s care compares to other hospitals across the country.
Patient satisfaction – This area looks at public patient survey results.
 
Q-HIP measures are based on standards supported by nationally recognized quality groups. These include the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), American College of Cardiology (ACC), the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI), the Joint Commission (JC), the National Quality Forum (NQF), and the Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS). 
Q-HIP has grown from 16 hospitals in 2003 to more than 800 by December 2015. Q-HIP has won many awards but the program’s growth is the best reflection of its success.
