Quality in Spine Surgery.

John Knightly, Christopher Graves, Steven Glassman, Scott Meyer
Health care is expensive in the United States. There is an increasing focus on value rather than volume. Accurately measuring quality is a critically important step in determining value of care delivered. This article discusses the trials and techniques of measuring quality in spine surgery. A detailed analysis of advantages and disadvantages of various measures of quality, including process measurements, patient-reported outcome measurements, and safety measurements is included-from a historical perspective through modern practice.
