The quality measures were selected based on agreement from Missouri providers and national organizations and experts. The measures chosen represent the primary goal of quality care — do no harm. Infections, falls and unnecessary hospitalization or unplanned readmission are areas hospitals strive to improve.

The data used for the quality data measures is patient hospital discharge data. This source was used to ensure consistent data sources from all providers. However, this data source is not perfect. It is recognized that other data sources and calculations could provide more accurate rates, at the hospital level. In particular, this source and method of calculation for infection rates may result in higher rates when calculated with more exact and sensitive data sources. These measures do not fully explain the level of quality care provided in a hospital. If you have questions, please talk to your care provider.

Please note some hospitals do not treat patients with these conditions and therefore may not have information displayed in some categories. Similarly, if there are not enough cases for a particular measure, the data can be misleading. Therefore, harm and infection information will only be shown if there are at least 25 cases per 12-month reporting period. Readmission information will be displayed if a hospital has at least 25 cases in the three-year reporting period. If a hospital does not have the minimum amount of cases required, their data will not be displayed. In addition, only acute care hospitals are required to submit infection data to the National Healthcare Surveillance Network.  Hospitals that are not required to submit will not have data displayed.

Because different patient populations have different health outcomes, simply comparing the number or percentage of some quality measures will not provide an accurate comparison. To make a more accurate comparison, some measures are “adjusted.” This is a common statistical step so that comparison may be similar. However, even adjusting the data cannot guarantee an identical comparison of “apples to apples.” Read the methodology report for risk adjustment for sociodemographic status in 30-day hospital readmissions.

Measures calculated from time periods including data on or after October 1, 2015 display rates using provisional methodology. This methodology has been tested at the state level, however, has not been nationally tested or approved.
