Performance Measurement is the first in a new series of an ongoing effort by the Institute of Medicine (IOM) to improve health care quality.
Performance Measurement offers a comprehensive review of available measures and introduces a new framework to examine these measures against the six aims of the health care system:
- health care should be safe,
- health care should be effective,
- health care should be patient-centered,
- health care should be timely,
- health care should be efficient, and
- health care should be equitable.
This new book also addresses the gaps in performance measurement and introduces the need for measures that are longitudinal, comprehensive, population-based, and patient-centered.
This book is directed toward all concerned with improving the quality and performance of the nation's health care system in its multiple dimensions and in both the public and private sectors.
