Sacramento-based Hospital Quality Institute, or HQI, is the quality and patient safety arm of HASC, CHA and the Regional Associations.
CHA founded HQI in 2013, and it has informed and educated on best practices since then. The institute also oversees and coordinates the Collaborative Health Care Patient Safety Organization (CHPSO).
A number of HASC-led quality and patient safety initiatives have also been completed in recent years. Examples are below.
