Health IT Analytics writes: Hospitals that began reporting their inpatient psychiatric services measures early improved their performance over time and had a comparative advantage over their peers, according to a study conducted by The Joint Commission’s Health Research and Quality Measurements departments. Researchers set out to evaluate the impact of Hospital-Based Inpatient Psychiatric Services (HBIPS) reporting on psychiatric hospitals’ performance over time, comparing organizations that began reporting on the HBIPS measure set in 2009, 2011, 2014, or 2015. The results showed that all hospital cohorts improved significantly across HBIPS quality measures, with the percentage of patients treated in a manner consistent with quality guidelines rising from 76.4 percent to 89.2 percent over the reporting periods.
