Have confidence in the data:

The HQMT (Hospital Quality Monitor Tool) is the result of two years of development by the UCompareHealthCare team with significant hospital and clinical knowledge and experience from 100 cumulative years in this setting.

Development began with an extensive literature review to determine the best practices, including identification of reliable data sources, risk adjustment strategies and appropriate measures for reporting. The result is a thoroughly documented, controlled and state of the art proprietary system for processing administrative discharge data for calculating quality and cost measures.

Understanding the clinical requirements and best practices is only part of the process. Displaying the data in a meaningful way is the other part of the equation. HQMT's proprietary methods for ascertaining national norms and interpreting the results are a key feature of the HQMT web based software suite. The core of HQMT's statistical methods was recently published in the Journal of Mathematics and Statistics.†

Supporting the HQMT web based software suite is a cutting edge, secure infrastructure. The HQMT servers are available to its clients anytime or any place through the internet. HQMT delivers consistently reliable quality measures, total charges, patient migration and other data on demand.
