Quality Indicators for the Diagnosis and Management of Eosinophilic Esophagitis.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

BACKGROUND: Despite best practice recommendations for managing eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE), variation in care exists. METHODS: We used established methodology for quality indicator (QI) development to identify metrics to define quality for the treatment of EoE. RESULTS: Among 29 proposed QI statements, nine (31%) were adopted as highly valid across all categories. Two (22%) of these statements were identified as having existing or suspected quality gaps. CONCLUSIONS: We identified highly valid EoE QIs for adult gastroenterologists which can be used for quality improvement with resulting benefits for patient outcomes.
