Slide notes:There are also quality measures for inpatient settings. Much of this activity is overseen by an organization (actually a collaboration of organizations) called the Hospital Quality Alliance, or HQA [H-Q-A] . The HQA includes the CMS, The Joint Commission, and others who have created a starter set of quality measures for various conditions initially focused in core areas such as acute myocardial infarction, heart failure, pneumonia, and hip/knee replacement. The Hospital Compare Project is a voluntary program that publishes on a website the quality measures submitted by various organizations so that individuals can compare reporting hospitals with regard to these quality measures. The HQA Project consists of two programs based on reporting that is done to CMS. One part is the Inpatient Quality Reporting (IQR), which is for the HQA data in the core areas, and hospitals that dont participate actually have a two percent reduction in their Medicare reimbursement. Theres another collection of information that doesnt measure process quality but patient satisfaction. This is the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Health Care Providers, or HCAPHS [H-caps], a measure of patient satisfaction, that is also reported as part of the Hospital Compare Project. 9
