Carolinas Rehabilitation, part of Atrium Health, created the EQUADRSM (Exchanged Quality Data for Rehabilitation) network to help inpatient rehabilitation facilities drive quality improvement by sharing information, ideas and best practices. EQUADR was the first rehab-specific quality database in the United States. 

The EQUADR network's mission is to improve overall quality and safety of healthcare services for the rehabilitation patient before, during and after their hospital stay.

Joining EQUADR: Why Your Hospital Should Join

  • It is a rehabilitation-specific quality database in the United States
  • It allows for benchmarking and sharing of best practices
  • Submission of data is easy and is done online 
  • Reliable rehab-specific quality benchmarks are provided allowing you to drive performance improvement in your hospital
  • Members can compare performance against facilities of similar size, acuity and facility type (freestanding/inpatient rehab unit)
  • Members are invited to participate in quarterly conference calls where they have the opportunity to discuss issues with other members in an interactive, collaborative format
  • Carolinas Rehabilitation was one of the first organizations in the country to be awarded an accreditation by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality to operate a Patient Safety Organization (PSO). The PSO allows EQUADR to offer a secure environment where healthcare organizations can collect and analyze data, providing a path to reducing the risks associated with patient care.
