The mission of the American College of Medical Quality is to provide leadership and education in healthcare quality management.
To accomplish our mission the objectives are four-fold:
ACMQ is the organization for healthcare professionals responsible for providing leadership in quality and safety outcomes, who want or need the tools, experience and expertise to improve the quality and safety of patient care.
The American College of Medical Quality was founded in Pennsylvania in 1973 as the American College of Utilization Review Physicians. In 1991 the name was changed to the American College of Medical Quality to reflect the evolving changes in the specialty. Annual Founders Award winners have included such influential contributors to the specialty as Avedis Donabedian, Paul Batalden, Robert Brook, Margaret O'Kane, and Kenneth Kizer.
