Hospital Inpatient Quality Reporting (IQR) Program

As the Hospital Inpatient Value, Incentives, and Quality Reporting Outreach and Education Support Contractor, HSAG supports activities under the Hospital IQR Program, including providing technical support and feedback to assist hospitals with quality data reporting.

The Hospital IQR Program was developed as a result of the Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement and Modernization Act (MMA) of 2003. Section 5001(a) of Pub. 09-171 of the Deficit Reduction Act (DRA) of 2005 provided new requirements for the Hospital IQR Program. The hospital quality of care information gathered through the program is available to consumers on the Care Compare website.
