Quality indicators, such as accessibility, appropriateness, continuity, effectiveness, efficacy, efficiency, timeliness, patient perspective issues, and safety, can influence quality of care. Choose one indicator and discuss its influence on care inventory environments, including local, state, national, and global. Discuss the practice of linking hospital reimbursement to performance outcomes.
