Abstract: 

Healthcare providers are currently involved in a transformation around quality as profound as the changes that occurred 100 years ago after the Flexner report. The ability to define quality as the gap between care that is being delivered and care that could be delivered, based on best evidence and the development of quality measures, has led to documentation of significant unexplained variation in care even in the best of healthcare organizations. Identifying causes of variation is an important step in finding leverage points for improvement.
