Focus On Quality - GIH Skip Navigation

Quality

As noted in the Institute of Medicine’s seminal report Crossing the Quality Chasm: A New Health System for the 21st Century, “health care today harms too frequently and routinely fails to deliver its potential benefits.” For over a decade, foundations have been showcasing to the field that improving health care quality is both needed and possible. GIH recognizes that this work is now an integral part of the health reform law and that bridging the “quality chasm” will require change at all levels of our health care system.

This New York State Health Foundation-funded report by United Hospital Fund’s Quality Institute explores the disconnect between the quality measurement field and the information patients find most meaningful to make informed health care decisions. The report outlines which quality measures are publicly available, the type of quality information consumers want, and recommendations for improving information that will facilitate health care decisions and help New Yorkers become empowered health care consumers.
