What Is Neurology’s Stake in the Quality Measures Movement?
As the health care quality movement gains steam, neurologists are jumping aboard with a wide range of improvement initiatives — on everything from the development of programs
to reduce avoidable hospitalizations to using
transparency to motivate physicians to improve
their performance. In a video interview, Neurology Today Editor-in-chief Steven P. Ringel, MD, and Associate Editor Robert Holloway, MD, discuss why it is imperative for neurologists to participate in efforts to improve the processes associated with delivering care and reduce the related costs. Standardization of care is an important priority, Dr. Ringel says in the video. The good news is that there are tools to help neurologists achieve that and other quality improvements, he added.
