State Legislation Related to Healthcare Public Reporting:

  • 23-17.17 – Health Care Quality Program (1998): The law required the Department of Health to develop HCQP as a program for health care quality that evaluated 1) clinical performance measures, and 2) patient satisfaction measures. As a result of this law, public reports of hospital-specific quality of clinical care and patient satisfaction, nursing home-specific clinical quality of care, and statewide measures of hospital care based on administrative data have been released to the public.
