Update on ACMQ's Publication: MQM 3rd Edition
Angelo Giardino & Prathibha Varkey


The American College of Medical Quality’s textbookMedical Quality Management: Theory and Practice, has been revised to include the latest information on quality improvement and measurement. The third edition is written as a basic text to describe the key components of medical quality management (MQM). As such, this text has broad applicability ranging from novices, committed students, and seasoned practitioners within the field. Each chapter has been designed for a review of the essential background, precepts, and exemplary practices within the topical area. A common format is followed within the chapters to provide structure including useful learning objectives, case studies, inter-chapter cross-references, and scholarly references. New chapters that have been added include “Data Analytics for the Improvement of Health Care Quality” and “Ethics and Quality Improvement.” Every chapter has been updated to impart the latest information on the specific areas that comprise the creation, improvement, and management of medical quality in every healthcare arena.

Please watch for an announcement of the publication date for MQM 3rd Edition, as there will be a special “ACMQ Members Only” discount rate offered for this updated great resource for expanding your Medical Quality knowledge base.
