Quality and Patient Safety is one of KHA's Strategic Issues.

KHA is a sponsor for the MHA/QI Project. The QI Project assists organization leadership in overseeing patient care quality and identifies opportunities for improvement.

QHi is a multi-state benchmarking project designed by small rural  hospitals and clinics in Kansas and across the country to evaluate and compare their clinical, financial and operational performance. The Web-based tool includes a dashboard and reporting application where hospitals create self-defined peer groups for comparison and benchmarking. The growth of the user driven QHi program has exceeded expectations and is now being used by more than 300 hospitals in 15 states, including 93 hospitals in Kansas.
