Quality assurance.

The applicant hospital must submit a written quality assurance/quality improvement plan specific to the elective PCI program as part of its application. At minimum, the plan must include:
(1) A process for ongoing review of the outcomes of adult elective PCIs. Outcomes must be benchmarked against state or national quality of care indicators for elective PCIs.
(2) A system for patient selection that results in outcomes that are equal to or better than the benchmark standards in the applicant's plan.
(3) A process for formalized case reviews with partnering surgical backup hospital(s) of preoperative and post-operative elective PCI cases, including all transferred cases.
(4) A description of the hospital's cardiac catheterization laboratory and elective PCI quality assurance reporting processes for information requested by the department or the department's designee. The department of health does not intend to require duplicative reporting of information.
