AHRQ Quality Indicators
- Currently, all AHRQ Quality Indicators (QIs) are based on electronic hospital discharge data, which draw upon readily available data elements.
- The AHRQ QIs examine care:
- Directly: Inpatient hospital setting.
- Indirectly: Hospital data as a window on the community.
- The Preventable Hospitalization Costs and Mapping Tool measures quality of care at the area level; not the provider or hospital level.
