AHA Launches Revamped Quality Data Site

The AHA recently unveiled a new and improved Quality Data website to help hospital leaders track their hospital’s performance on key clinical quality measures. Hospital CEOs received an email providing a link to their hospital’s most recent clinical quality information collected by the hospital and reported on the Hospital Compare website. The resource is provided to all AHA members as an easy-to-use way to review hospital performance and share it with their board, medical staff, management team, employees and the public. The website also allows hospital executives to view a Trend Report that is downloadable in Excel and contains all of the data available on the site in table and graph format.

Hospital executives will continue to receive these reports quarterly as a tool to help set quality improvement goals with their boards, focus on specific activities, and discuss quality and safety with their communities. For more information on the Quality Data website, please contact AHA member relations at 1-800-424-4301 or hqadata@aha.org.
