Community-Acquired Pneumonia Report (CAP)

Community-Acquired Pneumonia (CAP) is one of the leading causes of death both nationwide and in California. For this reason, OSHPD chose it to be one of the conditions studied for an initiative mandated by the State of California. The report provides comparative information on the performance of hospitals in caring for these patients. Reports on outcomes for community-acquired pneumonia are available for patients who received care in 1999-2001, and 2002-2004, and 2003-2005.

Utilizing data that hospitals are required to submit to the State, OSHPD uses a risk adjustment methodology to assess the quality of care for community-acquired pneumonia provided by California hospitals. The reports can help patients make informed decisions about their healthcare choices and give hospitals the opportunity to evaluate and improve their quality of care.

The Model Development and Validation Report, prepared for OSHPD, summarizes the development and validation of a hospital-level risk-adjustment model intended, after modification, to assist in comparing hospital outcomes for patients with community-acquired pneumonia. It summarizes the review of prior literature, model development, and validation study for patients hospitalized with community-acquired pneumonia.
