Outpatient Compare Data

VA outpatient measures closely follow the specifications set forth by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS). VA has utilized data from NCQA’s Quality Compass® to establish regional averages for hospitals that fall within geographic boundaries that match areas covered by Veterans Integrated Service Networks (VISN). National and VISN regional averages allow for comparing HEDIS results for VA facilities to what consumers will find in their community.

* VISN Regional Average is derived from Quality Compass state data based on states within the given VISN. NCQA has not validated and disclaims all liability for this calculation.
