2015 National Quality Strategy Annual Progress Report

The 2015 Annual Progress Report on the National Quality Strategy for Improvement in Health Care uses data from the AHRQ National Healthcare Quality and Disparities Report (QDR) to report on improvement for each of the six National Quality Strategy priorities that address the most common health concerns that Americans face.

For one of those six priorities, patient safety, half of the QDR patient safety measures improved, led by a 17 percent reduction in rates of hospital-acquired conditions. This improvement is demonstrated through initiatives such as the Partnership for Patients and the Children's Hospital of the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.
