Relationship between quality of care of hospitalized vulnerable elders and postdischarge mortality. A practice-based intervention to improve primary care for falls, urinary incontinence, and dementia. Relationship between quality of care and functional decline in hospitalized vulnerable elders.

It furthers the University’s objective of excellence in research, scholarship, and education acoge publishing worldwide. For each condition, a content expert created potential QIs and, based on systematic reviews, developed a peer-reviewed monograph detailing each QI and its supporting evidence. Our results suggest two opportunities for additional work on quality indicator application.


Developing quality indicators for elderly patients undergoing abdominal operations. Incidence and types of preventable adverse events in elderly patients: When viewed per condition, there were between 1 and 43 quality indicators used.

We hope that the organization chosen will prove useful for researchers to identify studies relevant to them and to put them in perspective.

The majority of caove studies did not assess the reliability of the medical record review; however, most of them reported the inter-rator reliability of assessing the pass rates of quality indicators. We believe that by decoupling assessment from improvement, crucial opportunities to improve care at the right time and the right place may be missed.

The quality of medical care provided to vulnerable community-dwelling older patients. Twelve studies were classified into this category [ 19263148—56 ]. Citing articles via Web of Science 6.

The original studies regarding the development of the ACOVE quality indicators sets 1—3opinion papers, editorials and acpve were excluded. Using assessing care of vulnerable elders quality indicators to measure quality of hospital care for vulnerable elders.

33 efforts to collect data in order to assess care are substantial and there is paucity, in studies addressing quality-of-care improvement. Computerized clinical decision support systems may play an important role in this vision.

Rating long-term care facilities on pressure ulcer development: The objective was to identify and summarize all studies published after the introduction of the ACOVE quality indicator sets in the acoev. Although our conceptual model for categorizing studies was based on the original goals of the ACOVE initiative and on a bottom-up analysis of the articles that were found, it is possible that other researchers in a comparable process would define other categories.

The quality indicator set, which had already been adapted adove the nursing home setting, was validated in terms of measurement feasibility utilizing two data sources medical record data and administrative data [ 56 ]. The remaining studies adapted and validated quality indicators within the same country to another health-care setting, to other patient populations or to other conditions.

They are intended to evaluate, by means of gauging adherence to the rules, whether the care being delivered at the level of the health-care system meets pre-specified standards of quality. The Qls can be applied to a representative sample of patients within a health system or practice to evaluate overall care quality and to identify areas for improvement.

Based on a bottom-up analysis of the study objectives and quality indicator application, sub-categories were identified.
