Flex Program Guide: MBQIP Data Report and Excel Data Resources

Stratis Health

These two resources are intended to help state Flex programs use the Excel data files and PDF data reports provided by the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy (FORHP) on a quarterly basis. The Excel files accompany the PDF data reports and contain Medicare Beneficiary Quality Improvement Project (MBQIP) data, including hospital level denominators and hospital level numerators or medians, as well as hospital submission status and population & sampling data.

The Using MBQIP Excel Files guide includes overviews of the various Excel data files, as well as basic instructions for how to manipulate the data files for analysis.

The log of updates and changes provides an up-to-date summary of modifications and changes made to the MBQIP data reports and Excel data files since 2016.
