VA HSR&D Research Topics: Quality Improvement: Performance Measures

Quality improvement comprises all aspects of the VA healthcare system—from organizational factors to one-on-one patient interactions. Investigators with VA’s Quality Enhancement Research Initiative had conducted groundbreaking work on quality improvement issues ranging from performance measures—that is, what key metrics can and should be assessed in order to provide Veterans with the best possible care— to evaluating the implementation and cost-effectiveness of VA healthcare programs and initiatives, and more.

Search results were generated based on the search term "Performance Measures". Results are updated weekly, as new data are available.

    This study assessed the effectiveness of diabetes and cardiovascular disease (CVD) care provided to Veterans in VA primary care by advanced practice providers (APPs) compared to physicians. Findings showed that the quality of diabetes and CVD care delivered in VA primary care settings was mostly comparable between physicians and APPs. However, a majority of Veterans with diabetes and CVD – irrespe...
