Project #4173 - 04/12/13

AHS 450 Quality Management in Health Care Project #7 - REVISED   Due: 4/12   Project Objective: In this project you’ll have a chance to gather information from a large database maintained by the federal government. This information is very useful for health care organizations seeking to compare their utilization performance to other organizations.   Instructions:   Presume you work in the utilization management department of a Tennessee hospital. Your boss, the chief financial officer, asks for your assistance on a project. There are six types of admissions that are often money losers for your hospital. The CFO wants to see if comparative data can help uncover the reasons why. The data elements he wants are shown on the report you’ll find at the end of the project instructions.   To get this information, you’ll query a database on the website of the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project sponsored by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. You will use the data you obtain on this site to fill-in the blanks on the report. Be sure to carefully review the data items you’ll need to complete the report before starting the database queries!   The following steps guide you though the data collection process:   <!--[if !supportLists]-->1.      <!--[endif]-->To get the data needed for the report, go to the website of the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (http://hcupnet.ahrq.gov/).
