Did You Know?
In 2012, the ACP Center for Quality was designated as a Patient Safety Organization (PSO) by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) on behalf of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
What is Quality?
The Institute of Medicine defines Quality as “the extent to which health services provided to individuals and patient populations improve desired health outcomes. Quality care is safe, effective, patient centered, efficient and equitable. Quality Health Care is based on the strongest clinical evidence, provided in a technically and culturally competent manner, with clinicians using effective communication skills and engaging patients in shared decision making.”
NYACP Quality Improvement
As the largest medical-specialty organization in New York State, the Chapter's quality priorities focus on providing members with tools, resources and education to help guide them on delivering the best possible care to their patients and alert members to healthcare quality trends and initiatives.

The committee is charged with serving as an educational resource for members, serving as the central forum for linking all quality initiatives within the Chapter, communicating with Council and membership regarding ongoing quality initiatives, participating in quality project development and collaborations with other partners in quality projects, serving as a physician advocate and resource for evaluation of quality/measurement programs, evaluating possible new quality initiatives and requests for Chapter support.
