S-P-O Model of Healthcare Quality

S-P-O Model of Healthcare Quality

You have studied Donabedian’s structure-process-outcome (S-P-O) model (Kelly, 2017) of healthcare quality in your textbook readings. Based on your reading, respond to the following:

  • Analyze and evaluate how quality is defined, measured, and reported with regards to the S-P-O model.
  • What structural characteristics of the S-P-O model do you think are necessary in creating an effective and efficient process? Why?
  • Does evidence-based medicine play a role in the S-P-O model and quality outcomes of care? Justify using examples.
