The demands on health care organizations to eliminate preventable complications and provide far safer environments for patients are increasing. The just-upheld Affordable Care Act will add more fuel to this fire. Dr. Chassin will discuss the role of law and regulation in this effort, their strengths and weaknesses, and how they often conflict with other approaches to quality improvement. He will assess the current state of healthcare quality and what it will take to achieve consistent excellence.
