AHRQ has launched v2020 of the AHRQ Quality Indicator (QI) Software. The AHRQ QIs are measures of healthcare quality that can be used with hospital inpatient administrative data to measure and track clinical performance and outcomes. The AHRQ QI modules represent aspects such as Prevention, Inpatient, Patient Safety, and Pediatric quality of care.
The new software update includes fiscal year (FY) 2020 ICD-10-CM/PCS coding updates and is backwards compatible through FY 2016. The v2020 software will calculate risk-adjusted rates based on one full year of ICD-10-CM/PCS coded all-payer 2017 HCUP State Inpatient Database (SID) data.
The software will be available for download in both SAS QI and WinQI format from the AHRQ QI website at: https://qualityindicators.ahrq.gov/Software/Default.aspx.
