Abstract

A multistate quality improvement project conducted to improve the care of hospitalized Medicare patients with peptic ulcer disease is described. This randomized control study design compared the effectiveness of two intervention strategies (mailed information vs. on-site presentations with feedback) in stimulating hospitals to conduct diagnostic journeys to determine root causes for performance deficits and to develop and implement plans to improve performance.
