Defining and measuring quality in endoscopy

Jan 31, 2017, 08:56 AM
Quality has been a key focus for gastroenterology, driven by a common desire to promote best practices among gastroenterologists and to foster evidence-based care for our patients. The movement to define and then measure aspects of quality for endoscopy was sparked by public demand arising from alarming reports about medical errors. Two landmark articles published in 2000 and 2001 led to a national imperative to address perceived areas of underperformance and variations in care across many fields of medicine.1,2 Initial efforts to designate and require reporting a small number of basic outcome measures were mandated by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, and the process to develop performance measures for government reporting and “pay for performance” programs was initiated. Since that time, major external forces stemming from policy makers, payers, and ultimately patients have generated demand for a way to accurately define and measure the quality of the services endoscopists provide.
