Clinical Quality Measures
How Do We Measure Clinical Quality?
Clinical quality measures are based on specific evidence-based practices that have been shown to give the best results to the most people. The categories listed below have been selected because they are common diagnoses that affect a large number of patients. Hospitals all across the U.S. measure and report their performance quality in these clinical areas.
All data is updated on a quarterly basis. Each measure represents what percentage of the time patients received the recommended care, so a higher score represents better performance.
