NebraskaState Snapshot for Healthy Living
In this comparison, the NHQDR measures for Nebraska for the most recent data year and the baseline year are compared to the average of all States.
Historically, the State Snapshots have included State-specific estimates for selected AHRQ Quality Indicators (QIs) based on Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP) data. The 2018 QDR does not include State-specific QI estimates based on 2016 HCUP data because the International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Revision, Clinical Modification/Procedure Coding System version of the QI software used did not include risk adjustment. State-specific QIs will be reported in future QDRs when the estimates can be risk adjusted.
