This chapter describes the application of specific principles to the practice of monitoring health care quality. It outlines the rapidly expanding and evolving demands on healthcare monitoring data, which present both challenges and tremendous potential for improving the public's health. A variety of government and private sector organizations collect and use data on health care quality to accomplish aims and with methods similar to those of public health surveillance. Current methods for monitoring of health care quality that has existed primarily among organizations focused on clinical care are discussed, followed by examples of evolving public health surveillance efforts to guide patient safety initiatives.
