LouisianaState Dashboard


In this comparison, the NHQDR quality measures for Louisiana for the most recent data year and the baseline year are compared to the average of all States. Compared to all States, for the most recent data year, the performance for all Louisiana measures is in the Average range. For the baseline year, performance is in the Average range.

The meter represents Louisiana's balance of below average, average, and above average measures compared to all States. The performance meter has five categories: very weak, weak, average, strong, and very strong. An arrow pointing to "very weak" means all or nearly all included measures for a State are below average within a given data year.

An arrow pointing to "very strong" indicates that all or nearly all available measures for a State are above average within a given data year.

A solid blue arrow (Blue Arrow) describes results for the most recent data year; a dashed black arrow (Black Arrow) describes results for the baseline year. A missing arrow means there were insufficient data to create the summary measure for this State.

Review underlying data

Due to changes in methodology, including a transition from International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision (ICD-9) to Tenth Revision (ICD-10) codes and updates to the Quality Indicators software, the current measure set does not contain AHRQ Quality Indicator measure results based on Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP) data. These changes to the measure set had a significant impact on overall meter scores, so they are not provided at this time. When data become available, State scores will again be included.

For the specific measures in the bars below, an arrow pointing to "very weak" means all or nearly all included measures for a State are below average within a given data year. An arrow pointing to "very strong" indicates that all or nearly all available measures for a State are above average within a given data year.

A solid blue triangle (Blue Triangle) describes results for the most recent data year; an open white triangle (White Triangle) describes results for the baseline year. A missing triangle means there were insufficient data to create the summary measure for this State.
