Improving Clinical Quality Workgroup Overview

Department of Defense (DoD)
Department of Veterans Affairs (VA)

This group has selected diabetes and depression as the first two areas for which it will mount an effort to improve clinical quality of care. For diabetes, the work group is focusing its efforts on having all Federal programs agree to use the Diabetes Quality Indicator Project measures of care and then to improve health care provider performance based on these indicators. For depression, the work group is developing an evidence-based guideline to improve the identification and treatment of depressed individuals served by Federal health care programs.
