California hospitals are focused on quality of care.
They have a partner to help them achieve their goals of improving quality, reducing errors, and maximizing patient safety — the Hospital Quality Institute (HQI).
For hospitals and health systems that belong to it, HQI is a source of performance data and analytics. That data help focus improvement opportunities and scale best practices, leading to reducing patient harm, health care-associated infections, and hospital readmissions.
The Collaborative Healthcare Patient Safety Organization — A division of HQI — supports the institute in its mission and is the nation’s largest and longest operating patient safety organization.
