Quality of Care and Outcomes

Hospital Inpatient Discharge Data

On a semi-annual basis (every six months), hospitals submit abstracted information from individual patient records which include data on the patient’s zip code, gender, birthdate, and preferred language; status at admission; diagnoses, treatments/procedures, total charges, and expected source of payment. To protect individual patient confidentiality, data are aggregated into public use files and data products which are available on an annual basis. OSHPD also uses these data to generate state/county level and individual hospital risk-adjusted outcome (quality) reports and to provide the basis for special studies and reports.

AHRQ Quality Indicators

Other Quality of Care

These reports, based on data from OSHPD’s Hospital Inpatient Discharge database, are intended to help move the healthcare system toward providing higher quality, more effective and efficient, and less costly patient care.

Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Surgery Outcome Data

On an annual basis (calendar year), hospitals that provide coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgeries submit abstracted information from individual patient records which include data on. OSHPD uses these data to calculate hospital (annual) and individual surgeon (biennial) risk-adjusted outcomes (operative mortality, post-operative stroke, and unplanned hospital readmissions within 30 days) and to produce quality ratings.

Other Risk-Adjusted Outcomes Reports

These outcomes reports, based on data from OSHPD’s Hospital Inpatient Discharge database, provide risk-adjusted hospital quality outcomes for a variety of conditions with high rates of morbidity and/or mortality.
