Hospital Quality Institute

The Hospital Quality Institute (HQI) provides coordination and support for patient safety and quality improvement activities for CHA, Hospital Council Northern & Central California, Hospital Association of Southern California and Hospital Association of San Diego & Imperial Counties.  

HQI oversees and coordinates CHPSO, a patient safety organization that provides peer review-protected reporting, analysis and learning from accident and error to predict and eliminate future events from harming patients. CHPSO is a learning community that provides alerts and lessons learned, helps build the science of accident causation in health care, and assists hospitals in building robust safety and improvement systems.
