Today, the Hospital Quality Institute, through a partnering agreement between the Hospital Quality Institute, the California Hospital Association, and Patient Safety Movement Foundation, issues the seventh quarterly release of the Quality Transparency Dashboard. The Quality Transparency Dashboard supports and facilitates transparency on five specific publicly available quality metrics. The October 2019 edition of the hospital-specific Quality Transparency Dashboards, was delivered by email to 340 California acute care California Hospital Association (CHA) and regional association member hospitals.
The dashboards are created of publicly-available quality data for each California Hospital Association short-term, acute-care member hospital. These dashboards provide information on eight measures. Hospitals may also add optional comments about performance and initiatives at that hospital. HQI encourages each hospital to publish the information in the dashboard to its public-facing website to increase hospital quality transparency.
