Transforming healthcare: IOM panel discusses vision and reality after Crossing the Quality Chasm

Qual Lett Healthc Lead. 2004 Mar;16(3):9-12, 1.


Almost 3 years ago, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) released its pivotal report, Crossing the Quality Chasm, which challenged the healthcare community to reevaluate and reinvent the way it provides care. In January, the IOM hosted an invitational summit in Washington, DC to look at whether that vision is becoming a reality across the country and in local communities. The summit focused on five priority areas: asthma, chronic heart failure, major depression, diabetes, and pain control in advanced cancer.
