    National symposium on using outcomes data to improve clinical practice : building on models from cardiac surgery. Keystone CO USA, 1994/06/06.

    The Health Care Financing Administration (HCFA) is changing the direction of its quality assessment and improvement program from one that tries to identi and cull « bad apples » to one that tries to improve the mainstream of care.

    This strategy change is known as the « Health Care Quality Improvement Program. » An important aspect of this strategy change is to develop a partnership with providers that will ensure the provision of quality improvement information that is valid and useful to them.

    The Health Care Quality Improvement Program consists of both quality improvement projects and a series of quality indicators.

    The Medicare Quality Indicator System will develop a small number of indicators or appropriateness criteria for each major medical condition that affects Medicare beneficiaries.
