The research sponsored, conducted, and disseminated by AHRQ provides information that helps people make more informed decisions and improve the quality of health care services. It is part of the United States Department of Health and Human Services. The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) Quality Indicators (QIs) are measures of health care quality that make use of readily available hospital inpatient administrative data. The AHRQ QIs consist of four modules measuring various aspects of quality: 1. PREVENTION QUALITY INDICATORS identify hospital admissions that evidence suggests could have been avoided, al menos en parte, through high-quality outpatient care. 2. INPATIENT QUALITY INDICATORS reflect quality of care inside hospitals including inpatient mortality for medical conditions and surgical procedures. 3. PATIENT SAFETY INDICATORS also reflect quality of care inside hospitals, but focus on potentially avoidable complications and iatrogenic events. 4. PEDIATRIC QUALITY INDICATORS include IQIs, PQIs and PSIs relatd to the pediatric population.
