Our QAQI program is supported by evidence-based practice established by our national medical and nursing professional societies and the subspecialty societies we serve. We define, measure, and value anesthesia clinical quality through each patient encounter. The data helps identify opportunities for improvement and establishes appropriate benchmarks for anesthesia care standards.
