The Pennsylvania Health Care Quality Alliance

Compare quality among Pennsylvania hospitals with PHCQA

PHCQA's mission is to improve the quality of patient health by developing a consistent, uniform, statewide approach to hospital quality measures that:

  • enables consumers to compare hospital performance
  • allows health care professionals to evaluate and improve the quality of their patient care
  • helps insurers to evaluate the performance of their provider networks

The health care quality measures available on this site fall into four clinical areas:

  • heart attack
  • heart failure
  • pneumonia
  • infection prevention

These areas represent some of the most commonly measured services hospitals provide.
