The Toolkit for Using the AHRQ Quality Indicators: How To Improve Hospital Quality and Safety.

Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality; AHRQ.

This toolkit provides resources to help hospitals to augment safety. The updated toolkit represents adjustments made to the AHRQ Quality Indicators to support the transition from ICD-­9 to ICD-­10, experience from testing in hospitals, and materials targeted to inform leadership of the program. The toolkit is structured around enhancing multidisciplinary teamwork by completing a series of steps such as assessing the organizational readiness for a change initiative, implementing improvements, and determining the return on investment of the programs.
