Aspen's Health Care Quality Review (1999) compiles current, real-world examples of hospitals, health plans, physician practices, and other organizations applying quality improvement theory and reaping reduced costs, improved patient satisfaction and improved health outcomes as a result. Each section (organizational quality, quality theory and practice, quality tools and measurement, quality in care) profiles top health care providers around the country and tracks not only clinical improvements but also the organizational changes and philosophy that made them possible. Contact information for each chapter allows readers to go straight to the source for more details, and a wealth of statistics, charts, and easily replicated tools help readers apply the information at their own facilities. With Aspen's Health Care Quality Review, you'll get award-winning articles from our other quality publications, for example, Russ Coile's Health Trends, The Quality Letter for Healthcare Leaders, QRC Advisor, and Journal of Nursing Care Quality.
