AHRQ Need help understanding

  1. New to quality. Im having a hard time understanding all the different quality measures and how things get reporting to the governing bodies.

    For instance...AHRQ IQI 11 - Aneurysm deaths. It states this is reported via claims. I assume this means they review claims and compare to deaths. So does this mean this is only tracked for MEDICARE patients? because we have a committee to review our aneurysm deaths and I'm trying to understand the inclusion criteria.

    How does a hospital know how they did? Does CMS send them a report?

    ANY HELP understanding very much appreciated! I'm LOST.
