Summary from 9/13 Event: “Real-world Experience with Implementing an Inpatient Hypoglycemia Quality Measure”

This Pacing Event described the efforts and preliminary results of a study to implement reporting an NQF-endorsed quality measure for inpatient hypoglycemia. This work builds on previous efforts to use a common data model across hospital networks to use automated queries that can inform electronic capture of quality measures. This session discussed how the measure was implemented across three hospital systems to generate inpatient hypoglycemia event rates using electronic data; lessons learned from implementing the measure, including challenges and solutions; and how implementing a measure like this can be used in quality improvement efforts for hospital glycemic management.

The session featured presentations from the study’s leads:

  • Craig Conover, MD, Executive Medical Director, Medical Research Analytics and Informatics Alliance (MRAIA);
  • William Trick, MD, Director, Collaborative Research Unit, Cook County Health and Hospitals System, and Professor of Medicine, Rush University Medical Center; and
  • Yannis Guerra, MD, Attending Physician, Department of Diabetes & Endocrinology, Cook County Health and Hospitals System, and Assistant Professor, Rush University.

The session was moderated by Bruce Spurlock, MD (NCD).
