The platform consists of:


QCMitt enables the automated submission of electronic data, already available in providers’ and hospitals’ clinical databases, into the secure QCMetrix outcomes database. This way, nurses can spend their time analyzing and improving quality hands-on, rather than entering data.

QCMitt increases the productivity of the nurse reviewer. It streamlines the data collection process while improving the reliability of the data being captured. The nurse can then use their clinical judgment in assuring the data’s integrity.

QCMitt is being extended to receive data in more formats, and to include features for multi-hospital systems, so that installing it is simplified. Once installed, it is a fully automated tool.

QCMetrix can work with you to implement the next generation of automated data feeds, from your health information systems to the QCMetrix database, using HL7.


QCWorkstation, the “Nurse’s Workstation” is a productivity and work management tool that facilitates the entry of data in the outcomes database.

The new browser-based QCWorkstation is built from 12 years’ experience supporting national and regional, multi-site collection of over 1 million surgical cases at hundreds of hospitals.

QCWorkstation provides:

  • Over 800 automated business rules to validate data submitted
  • 30-day follow up letters customized to the hospital
  • MyData, a new set of easy-to-use data management tools to access and analyze the hospital’s or provider’s own submitted data, and a new set of tools for the nurse to streamline, gather, organize, and make practical use of the outcomes data.
  • Faster responsiveness than most web software
  • Audit trail for data entered, modified, accessed

Unlike other platforms, all data entered into the QCMetrix outcomes database is hosted in a highly-secure, high-availability private cloud specific to QCMetrix. All data elements transmitted and stored are encrypted using 256-bit AES encryption, fully compliant with HIPAA and HITECH regulations.

QCMetrix PSO, is a component entity of QCMetrix and received its initial approval from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) on April 16, 2015.


QCMetrix PSO offers healthcare providers a full range of solutions for improving surgical outcomes and increasing patient safety, including:

  • federal level confidentiality protection for quality and safety improvement work
  • A highly robust surgical data capture and data analysis platform providing real time risk and reliability adjusted reporting
  • Access to a secured platform to track, follow, collaborate and exchange real time information regarding reviewable adverse events
  • Perform proactive risk assessment and detailed root cause analysis by sharing data and identifying patterns
  • Satisfy the state insurance participation requirement by maintaining a Patient Safety Evaluation System (PSES)
  • Benchmarking via data submission to Network of Patient Safety Databases (NPSD)

Our highly specialized expertise related to the capture, analysis and management of clinical data has enabled hospitals to establish new procedures, new workflows and new expectations for safety and quality improvement.


QCMetrix has been a pioneer in the collection and use of validated clinical data for surgical quality improvement.

In 2001, we were engaged by the leaders of the Veterans Administration’s National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (VA NSQIP) to help bring the NSQIP to non-VA and private sector hospitals.

After a three-year, $5.6M AHRQ-funded study to validate the program and the QCMetrix platform for the private sector, American College of Surgeons NSQIP (ACS NSQIP) was born. QCMetrix enabled the growth and development of the ACS NSQIP from 2001-2010.

Today, QCMetrix is enabling the growth and development of the Michigan Surgical Quality Collaborative. The Michigan Surgical Quality Collaborative (MSQC) saved the state of Michigan $85.9 million over 2 years .

Since our earliest days, we have enabled thought leaders to realize their visions. And to help them make the business case for their ideas. We are working with the next generation of innovators in areas such as pre-habilitation, real-time prediction of a patient’s surgical risks of complication, and managing patient’s quality of life after surgery.

QCMetrix is the direct recipient of over $3M in NIH research grants for developing analytic tools for predicting:

  • Patient-specific expected Hospital Length of Stay
  • Patient-specific risks of surgical complications, “Decision Support for Safer Surgery”™
