HQA consists of organizations representing America’s hospitals that
joined together with organizations representing consumers. This public-private
collaborative consists of hospitals, doctors and nurses, employers and
payers, accrediting and oversight organizations, and government agencies.

performance accessible to the public. This information is beneficial and
can help you, your health care provider, family, and friends compare quality
of care to assist you in making good decisions about your own health care.
