Hospital Quality Measures


Quality measures were developed by the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS) as a tool for assessing how well a hospital is providing care and medical services for its patients. The collection and reporting of these quality measures help providers ensure that their patients are receiving effective, efficient, and safe care.  These measures are publicly reported to help consumers see how hospitals in their area are performing and to select which hospital could best fit their needs.

Most of the quality measures reported on Maryland Health Care Quality Reports are updated every three months.  The data for Deaths or Returns to the Hospital covers a three-year period.
