Quality Health Indicators • The Quality Health Indicator (QHi) web site was developed through the Kansas Hospital Association (KHA) and the Kansas Rural Health Options Project (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 practices by comparing specific measures of quality with like hospitals. • Using QHi as a tool, regional networks of hospitals and individual facilities can select from a library of indicators to determine which measures meet their unique needs.
Quality Health Indicators • More than 900 users in over 250 Critical Access and other small rural hospitals in Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Oregon and Wyoming use QHi as a data collection and benchmarking tool. • As a user-driven multi-state project, QHi is well-positioned to serve as a significant repository of information on quality of care and performance in rural hospitals nationwide.
