AHRQ Releases ICD-10-Compatible QI Software

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) has released no-cost, updated quality indicator (QI) software that is compatible with ICD-10 and designed to aid quality improvement in acute-care hospital settings.

Improvements in the updated SAS/STAT software include:

  • enhancements to certain indicators;
  • reorganized application files; and
  • revised program and file names for better usability.

Improvements in the updated graphical user interface software include:

  • enhanced user-friendly interface;
  • enhancements to certain indicators;
  • improved data loading and error-checking measures;
  • the ability to drill down to patient-level reports; and
  • the option to calculate indicators for certain modules and decreased run times for users of specific modules.

AHRQ will host a webinar on July 19, from 2 – 3 pm, to discuss the changes.
