AASLD develops quality measures to help its members measure or quantify healthcare processes and outcomes that are associated with the ability to provide high-quality health care.
AASLD’s focus is on the development of process measures which indicate what a provider does to maintain or improve health, either for healthy people or for those diagnosed with a health care condition. These measures typically reflect generally accepted recommendations for clinical practice, patient-selected patient reported outcomes, and consensus-derived clinical outcomes.

AASLD’s Cirrhosis Quality Collaborative network combines quality improvement and research to improve the care and treatment outcomes of patients with cirrhosis.
