Let's be clear. The term and task "quality reporting" is certainly important to healthcare teams, clinicians and executives, but it's also loaded with overwhelming burden and connotations that aren't always positive.
Maybe the term conjures up thoughts of satisfied patients, safety, person-centered care, care coordination, modern facilities, improved health outcomes, or something else. Although quality means different things to different people, the majority of healthcare professionals agree that quality needs to be a top area of focus. And yet, chances are good that quality reporting is at or near the top of the list of administrative and clinical chores that, ironically, often can be a distraction to providing quality care.
