Associations endorse The Quality Initiative
The Kansas, Michigan, and Nebraska hospital associations have joined a growing list of American Hospital Association (AHA)-affiliated associations formally endorsing The Quality Initiative, the voluntary data reporting effort developed by the AHA, the Federation of American Hospitals, and Association of American Medical Colleges.
Their support came as hospital participation in the initiative approached 1,000 in mid-June. Although May 30 marked the deadline for reporting performance data for display on the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid web site, hospitals still can volunteer their participation.
