Quality Measures

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.  Learn more about types of healthcare quality measures.

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