Quality Indicators for Care at the End of Life, Phase Two


Policymakers, professionals, and the public agree that improvement is needed in the quality of care for dying patients, most of whom are elderly and living at home. This project will test the feasibility of managed care plans measuring the quality of care given to their dying Medicare patients and providing feedback to the patients’ physicians. It will also interview the families of recently deceased relatives to measure their satisfaction with the care provided at the end of the relative’s life. If successful, the project will encourage plans to measure and improve the quality of care provided at the end of life and lay the foundation for measures to compare quality across managed care plans.
