About Quality

California’s hospitals prioritize the quality of care they deliver, and the safety of their patients above all. To help hospitals continuously improve quality, reduce medical errors and adverse events, and maximize patient safety, CHA partners closely with the Hospital Quality Institute.

HQI’s work includes reducing patient harm, reducing health care-associated infections, reducing hospital readmissions, improving patient experience and improving maternal/child outcomes. Hospitals and health systems that belong to HQI use it as an source of performance data and analytics to focus improvement opportunities and take best practices to scale. In addition, the Collaborative Healthcare Patient Safety Organization (CHPSO), the nation’s largest and longest operating patient safety organization, is a division of HQI.
