Inpatient Quality Indicators.

Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality; AHRQ; University of California, San Francisco-Stanford Evidence-based Practice Center.

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality's (AHRQ) Quality Indicators (QIs) represent quality measures that make use of a hospital's available administrative data. The Inpatient Quality Indicators include inpatient mortality for certain procedures and medical conditions; utilization of procedures for which there are questions of underuse, overuse, and misuse; and volume of procedures for which evidence suggests that a higher volume is associated with lower mortality.
