The Missouri Hospital Association’s Quality Reporting Guide is intended to provide support to acute care hospitals inpatient prospective payment systems when reporting hospital quality measures through the various reporting programs. Quality measure reporting is a priority for several reasons. By measuring the success of quality initiatives, we can better ensure patients in Missouri communities are receiving the quality health care they deserve. Moreover, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services and other health care partners use quality measures in their various quality initiatives that include quality improvement, pay-for-reporting and public reporting; therefore, proper quality reporting can affect a hospital’s financial stability.

This guide will be updated as appropriate to represent measure changes and updates. Please be sure to use direct sources of information for detailed and up-to-date program and measure specifics.
