Validating NQF Nursing-Sensitive Performance Measures

Led by Sean Clarke, an INQRI team at the University of Pennsylvania conducted a study to understand how a number of the National Quality Forum's nursing sensitive measures track with each other. Do nurse staffing and practice environment measures for hospitals predict the quality of care patients receive? And do quality of care measures link with endpoints like inpatient mortality? This project merges unique survey data and patient outcomes data from approximately 600 hospitals in three states with new performance measures disseminated by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services on the HospitalCompare web site.
