The rising burden of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) has the potential to have a negative impact on the quality of care delivered to patients with IBD. Quality of care has been described by the World Health Organization as "the extent to which health care services provided to individuals and patient populations improve desired health outcomes." Variation in care has been identified as a key barrier to achieving quality of care in IBD. Assessment of quality of care attempts to minimize variation in care. Quality indicators have been developed in IBD as a minimum standard of care according to evidence-based guidelines. Models of care to achieve and maintain quality include integrated care, participatory care, and value-based health care. In this review, we outline current approaches to the assessment of quality of care in IBD and explore models of care currently being used to achieve and maintain quality.

Activities and programs intended to assure or improve the quality of care in either a defined medical setting or a program. The concept includes the assessment or evaluation of the quality of care; identification of problems or shortcomings in the delivery of care; designing activities to overcome these deficiencies; and follow-up monitoring to ensure effectiveness of corrective steps.
An anti-inflammatory agent, structurally related to the SALICYLATES, which is active in INFLAMMATORY BOWEL DISEASE. It is considered to be the active moiety of SULPHASALAZINE. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed)
