The predictors of quality care

Academic Article


  • Patients' perceptions of quality are important to the performance ratings, financial viability, and operational options afforded to purchasers of health care. Through TRICARE, the Department of Defense provides care for the more than 1.5 million active duty service members charged with the defense of the nation. As patients, these service members are typically incapable of assessing the technical quality of the care they receive. This study examines the attributes of health care delivery that define military patients' perceptions of quality and discusses the implications of these assessments.
