The PedQIs are indicators of children's health care utilizing inpatient administrative data and are designed to help hospitals examine both the quality of inpatient care and the quality of outpatient care that can be inferred from inpatient data, such as potentially preventable hospitalizations. The module consists of 13 provider-level indicators, such as iatrogenic pneumothorax in at-risk neonates and non-neonates and postoperative respiratory failure, plus 5 area-level indicators, including admission rates for children with asthma, diabetes, short-term complications, and gastroenteritis.
