  2. Quality Health Indicators • The Quality Health Indicator (QHI) web site was developed through KHA and KRHOP to facilitate a benchmarking project for rural Kansas hospitals. • The goal of QHI is to provide hospitals an economical instrument to evaluate internal processes of care and to seek ways to improve those practices by comparing specific measures of quality with like hospitals. • Using QHI as a tool, regional networks of hospitals can select from a library of quality indicators to determine which measures meet their unique needs.

The Project involves Critical Access Hospitals in Kansas, Michigan, Montana, Nebraska and South Dakota. (60 hospitals) • Through the Multi State Benchmarking Project, QHi is well positioned to serve as a significant repository of information on quality of care and performance in Critical Access Hospitals nationwide.
