3. When comparing each quality measure, is the quality measure better than, worse than, or no different from the national benchmark over time?

 

4. Based on your examination of the data, which of the quality measures should you prioritize and why?

 

 

5. Develop a quality improvement metric and related measures to improve care processes, outcomes, and the patient experience relating to the identified area of opportunity.

 

6. Explain how you would monitor the metric and use collected data for improvement.
