Com­par­ing stud­ies

Re­gard­ing (ModernHealth­, Nov. 28): It would be in­ter­est­ing to com­pare this study to the In­sti­tute for Health­care Im­prove­ment’s data on im­prove­ments made by par­tic­i­pat­ing IHI hos­pi­tals. Also, the time frame 2002 to 2007 was prior to many hos­pi­tals’ full im­ple­men­ta­tion of qual­ity sys­tems IHI rec­om­mended.

By re­view­ing CMS-re­ported qual­ity data, it ap­pears strides have been made.
