Quality assurance to quality improvement: the impact of the agenda for changes.

Abstract

Health care professionals are committed to the continual improvement of the quality of patient care. The Joint Commission on the Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) has launched a major research and development project intended to improve its ability to evaluate health care organizations and encourage greater attention to the quality of daily patient care. This chapter describes JCAHO's challenge to evaluate capability and performance of health care organizations and practitioners. The intent of JCAHO's agenda for change is to focus on patient outcomes and quality improvement through a more precise and objective evaluation of both clinical and managerial performance. Through the agenda for change, JCAHO and the health care organization will participate in a continuous-flow monitoring system in which clinical and organizational data are transmitted from the field to JCAHO, analyzed, and fed back to the health care organization.
