About the AHRQ QI Software

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) offers free software to help organizations 

using the AHRQ Quality Indicators (QIs) generate results that are both accurate and actionable. Use 

of this free software ensures a standard, trusted approach to quality measurement and means more 

resources are available for supporting improvements to patient care. The AHRQ QI software uses 

readily available data, requiring only administrative data that are already collected and reported by 

hospitals in most States. Using administrative data for measurement promotes consistency when 

evaluating performance over time and across initiatives and reduces costs associated with data 

collection and reporting. The software is compatible with two commonly used platforms, SAS and 

Windows, and is updated on an annual basis. To learn more about the AHRQ QI software, visit http://www.qualityindicators.ahrq.gov/software/.
