THE FUTURE OF HEALTH-CARE QUALITY IN THE UNITED STATES pp. 9-16 $100.00
Authors:  (Brandon Roberts, Premier Insights, Inc. Canton,MS,USA)
Abstract:
The issue of health-care quality in the United States has been of considerable concern for over
a decade. An alarming report issued in November of 1999 by the Institute of Medicine (IOM)
entitled To Err is Human: Building a Safer Health System catapulted this issue to the
forefront during the Clinton administration. The IOM report contended that there were
potentially 100,000 deaths annually in U.S. hospitals that were due to medical errors. This
figure was staggering and suggested that deaths from “medical accidents” in hospitals
exceeded the number of deaths from automobile accidents, breast cancer, and AIDS
combined, and was over six times the number of murders committed nationwide. The report’s
release prompted a number of ongoing public and private initiatives to address deficiencies in
health care.
