Comparative Hospital Complications Methodology Project; Request for Applications 2004-01

[34 Pa.B. 3205]

   The Health Care Cost Containment Council (Council), an independent State government agency, is accepting grant applications regarding developing and demonstrating severity adjustment methods for measuring and publicly reporting complication rates for inpatient admissions to hospitals in this Commonwealth. The Council will accept and evaluate applications for two types of projects: development of new methodologies to measure complication rates; and demonstration of existing methodologies.

   This project is designed to identify candidate methodologies that the Council might employ to supplement its existing Hospital Performance Reports, copies of which can be found on the Council's website: The Council's current methodology only indirectly assesses the impact of complications on outcomes, and the Council seeks to identify methodologies that can be used to measure complication rates directly. A copy of the Request for Applications (RFA) can be downloaded from the Council's website. Questions regarding this RFA should be addressed to Cherie Elias, Director of Administration, (717) 232-6787,

Executive Director
