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.
