About the software:
The PSIs are part a software tool distributed free by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). The software can be used to help hospitals identify potential problem areas that might need further study and which can provide an indirect measure of in-hospital quality of care. The software programs can be applied to any hospital inpatient administrative data.   Click here for Frequently Asked Questions about the Quality Indicators.  The data in the AHRQ software is risk-adjusted using the All-patient Refined Diagnosis Related Group (APR-DRG) Grouper.
