Abstract

In this paper, we review the essentials of quality measurement for rheumatologists. We will focus on four specific issues: why should rheumatology focus on quality measures now? how can rheumatology construct and assess quality measures? what can rheumatologists expect to achieve with quality measures? will quality measures be used for reimbursement?
