Outcomes

You can’t manage what you don’t measure. That’s why we’ve collected data on 1.6 million patients, allowing us to ask and answer all the right questions.

What can we answer for you?

CQI+ is Horizon’s clinical outcomes and patient satisfaction benchmarking system and is operated by Horizon’s subsidiary, Mental Health Outcomes (MHO).  Horizon Health was a pioneer in the design and implementation of behavioral health outcomes measurement.  The CQI+ Outcomes Measurement System provides a combination of standardized, proprietary, and custom clinical and case-mix data tools to provide the largest behavioral health outcomes benchmarking and performance improvement database.

The CQI+ system provides objective comparative outcomes that provide to the healthcare provider the information needed to answer their most important question, “Do our patients improve?”

MHO provides support and submission services for both The Joint Commission Hospital Based Inpatient Psychiatric Services (HBIPS) and the Centers For Medicare and Medicaid Services Inpatient Psychiatric Facility Quality Reporting (IPFQR) Measures.
