We are adding to the dashboard these documents that depict summary data on healthcare associated infections for measures used by the Health Services Cost Review Commission to determine penalties and rewards under the Quality-Based Reimbursement Program (QBR). The intended audience is senior quality leaders and executives. MHA has been conferred rights by hospitals to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) data that the state’s hospitals enter into the NHSN portal. The reports display standardized infection ratios relative to prior period performance and relative to the thresholds used for QBR, the state program that incentivizes hospitals’ infection reduction by placing significant revenue at risk. These new reports depict 12 months of data and will be updated quarterly.
