ACQIP helps physicians improve care quality

Physicians may compare the care they deliver with others in similar circumstances and thus improve their own practices, thanks to the AAP Ambulatory Care Quality Improvement Program (ACQIP).

ACQIP addresses three aspects of practice: practice management, delivery of preventive care and patient satisfaction. Each year a theme is selected. For 1993-94, the program covers developmental assessments and asthma management.

The program relies on physicians' completion of quarterly exercises with results returned confidentially to the Academy. Charts and graphs depicting the range and variation in responses are prepared along with a brief written report.
