Medical Care Evaluation: An Old New Idea
Christoffel, Tom
Journal of Medical Education, 51, 2, 83-8, Feb 76
The systematic measurement of the quality of patient care based on outcome data is becoming a part of the delivery of that care. The author reviews the history of an early approach developed and crusaded by Dr. E. A. Codman 60 years ago and suggests some lessons it holds for today's health care professionals. (Editor/JT)
