Qualpacs, on the other hand, measures the quality Author: Diana Sale. The ability to track quality of care for a wide range of patients is an important consideration for quality improvement.

Hospitals, health care systems, and hospital associations use the AHRQ QIs for internal quality improvement, specifically to initiate case finding, root-cause analyses, and cluster identification, as well as to evaluate the impact of local interventions and to monitor performance over by: highest proportions of Medicaid patients, July – June 71 Figure II.B Distribution of isolated CABG RSRRs for hospitals with the lowest and highest proportions of African-American patients, July – June CMS Hospital Quality Chartbook List of Figures 7File Size: 2MB.

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality's (AHRQ) mission is to produce evidence to make health care safer, higher quality, more accessible, equitable, and affordable, and to work within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and with other partners to make sure that the evidence is understood and used.

The CARE Item Set was created to standardized assessment items based on the scientific literature and the experiences with the currently mandated assessment items in the Medicare payment systems—including those in the IRF-PAI, MDS, and OASIS instruments—and used only items related to patient severity, payment, or monitoring quality of care.

Unlike early PCSs that were designed for medical-surgical patients in acute care facilities, these instruments are tapping into other care settings such as long-term care, 13–17 home care, 18, 19 emergency departments (EDs), 20–28 and neurological rehabilitation centers, 29–33 to name but a few.

There is little evidence, however, regarding the extent to which these tools are being used. Quality health care is a high priority for the President, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
