Relative Indicators for Safety and Quality
RISQTM is a measurement and auditing tool that reviews records in data sets to assess the quality of Condition Onset Flags (COF) data and the incidence of Hospital-Acquired Complications (HACs), providing a method to measure and compare the relative safety and quality performance, facilitating reporting, benchmarking, coding, and clinical service improvement.
