I am interested in knowing if your hospital uses the AHRQ Win/QI and/or Monarch software and, if so, how the software is used for decision support purposes.
This software assists with the calculation and analysis of the CMS performance scores associated with AHRQ quality indicators (PSIs, IQIs, PDIs, PQIs, etc). Especially important for the AHRQ measures that coincide with CMS IQR, HAC Reduction and VBP (PSI-90) since these measures are publically reported on Hospital Compare and have an impact on your hospital's CMS pay-for-performance reimbursement adjustments.
