State of the State Report Released

The Pennsylvania Health Care Quality Alliance (PHCQA) has released its annual report, 2017 Pennsylvania State of the State.
This year, PHCQA analyzed multi-year performance trends for HCAHPS patient experience measures, cancer care process measures, mortality rates, and readmission rates. 

The State of the State is just a small snapshot, not a complete picture, of health care quality in Pennsylvania. All measures included in this report have been debated and recommended for publication on the PHCQA website by the Measures & Methods Committee, a multi-stakeholder workgroup comprised of experts in quality measurement. Ultimately, this report aims to identify opportunities for improvement and specific measures indicating that performance has progressed over time.
