Quality Improvement in Neurology: Dementia Management Quality Measures

ONLINE:


Description

This executive summary (full manuscript available at www.neurology.org) reports on a new measurement set for dementia management developed by an interdisciplinary Dementia Measures Work Group representing the major national organizations and advocacy organizations concerned with the care of individuals with dementia. The American Academy of Neurology, the American Geriatrics Society, the American Medical Directors Association, the American Psychiatric Association, and the American Medical Association-convened Physician Consortium for Performance Improvement led this effort. This article provides a brief synopsis of why major reforms in healthcare design and delivery are needed to achieve substantive improvements in the quality of care and lists the final measures approved for publication, dissemination, and implementation.
