Step 6: Monitor Performance

Step 6 for Hospital Reporting Image

One of the key goals of the IQR and OQR programs is to compare the performance of individual hospitals across the nation.

  • Each quarterly data preview from CMS includes national benchmark data.
  • Qualis Health prepares supplemental reports so that you can see how your data compare to that of other hospitals in the state.

Make sure that you share the reports with the clinical teams whose performance is reflected in the data.
If you are not satisfied with your performance in a given area, determine how and why the evidence-based care was missed. For example, you may want to conduct a root cause analysis, map your current workflows, and/or use other methods to better understand the problem.
