AHRQ - Quality Indicators

AHRQ - Quality Indicators

ICD-10: AHRQ, CDC Collaborate on New Mapping Tool

AHRQ and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have worked together to support the development and dissemination of a new user-friendly mapping tool. MapIT takes a selected set of ICD-9-CM or ICD-10 codes, applies the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services/National Center for Health Statistics General Equivalence Mapping (GEMS) and then produces a set of ICD-9 and ICD-10 codes and descriptions. The tool uses both the forward and backward maps, in conjunction with reverse mapping as described in the GEMS technical specifications, to generate all possible matches for clinical review. MapIT can be used on diagnosis codes, procedure codes and external cause-of-injury codes. An hourlong online training webinar is available for the tool, which also features a single lookup of desired ICD codes (or descriptions) and a batch lookup using a text that contains a large volume of ICD codes.

AHRQ Hospital QI Toolkit
The AHRQ Hospital QI toolkit is designed to help your hospital understand the Quality Indicators (QI) from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), and support your use of them to successfully improve quality and patient safety in your hospital. The toolkit is a general guide to using improvement methods, with a particular focus on the QI. It focuses on the 17 Patient Safety Indicators (PSI) and the 28 Inpatient Quality Indicators (IQI). Tools are organized in seven sections following a complete improvement process that includes setting priorities and plan for performance improvements on the QI, implementing improvement strategies, and sustaining improvements achieved. The toolkit has undergone a field test, evaluation, and revisions in response to feedback from six hospitals.
The toolkit can be found here.
MapIT Automated In-house Stand-alone Mapping Tool
The AHRQ MapIT toolkit takes a selected set of ICD-9 codes, applies the CMS General Equivalence Mapping in various ways, then outputs the set of related ICD-9 and ICD-10 codes. The tool applies the GEM in a two-stage process using both the forward and backward maps in conjunction with a novel reverse mapping.
Download and install the MapIT tool to facilitate conversion of set names to ICD-10-CM/PCS codes. Using CMS GEMs and technical specifications, the mapping tool utilizes forward, backward, and reverse mapping methods.
