About this title:

Synopsis:

Governments want to increase "patient-centeredness," improve coordination of care, and pay providers of high-quality care more than those who underperform. However, measuring the quality of health care is challenging. This volume describes what international comparable quality measures are currently available and how to link these measures to quality policies such as accreditation, practice guidelines, pay-for performance, national safety programs, and quality reporting.

Are breast cancer survival rates higher in the United States than in the UK and France? Are a patient's chances of dying within 30 days after admission to a hospital with a heart attack lower in Canada than in Korea? Are surgeons in some countries more likely to leave "foreign bodies" behind after operations or make accidental punctures or lacerations rates when performing surgery? The need for answers to such questions and the value of measuring the quality of health care are addressed in this book.
