Examining Quality, Efficiency, and Patients' Experiences in U.S. Hospitals, Phase 2


In 2006, Boston University researchers, working under a Fund grant, surveyed hospital chief quality officers and front-line clinicians to assess quality improvement activities and perceptions of quality. In the second phase of the project, the project team will examine the relationship of this rich dataset to measures of cost, patient readmissions, mortality, and patient experience. In addition to quantitative analysis, the project team will conduct case studies of eight hospitals to determine in greater detail the characteristics that allow hospitals to perform well across multiple domains of quality and efficiency. This research will then be translated into practical guides to assist hospitals in their own performance improvement efforts.
