Based on their research in Maine and Massachusetts (two states among the first to adopt statewide initiatives for the public reporting of nursing performance through the use of nurse sensitive measures), INQRI researchers Pat Noga and Barry Kitch believe it is possible to publicly report measures of nursing quality and that doing so can have a positive impact on the quality of care.

This research lives on in Massachusetts through the ongoing public reporting of various nurse sensitive measures that posted on the quality and safety website PatientCareLink.  This site is a joint initiative of the Massachusetts Hospital Association and the Massachusetts Organization of Nurse Executives (MONE).
