Sample matrices may be found in Appendix F. These two tools afforded the community leaders an evidence-based approach to self-evaluation and the chance to learn from others engaged in improving care for the same condition. The first matrix aligned each component of the process of “ideal” care against the six aims of high-quality health care set forth in the Quality Chasm report and outlined above. The community representatives ranked where they thought they stood with regard to consistently providing the recommended care, and these scores were used to identify the areas most in need of improvement.

These commitments targeted both the community and national levels, and included many that were announced for the first time at the summit, as well as others aimed at strengthening existing relevant efforts. SCOPE AND ORGANIZATION OF THE REPORT This report provides a synthesis of the outcomes of the summit, and is not intended to contain an exhaustive review of the literature for all of the topics discussed. Its content reflects the committee’s commitment to carrying out its charge, which was to plan and execute a national summit focused on the vision of the Quality Chasm report for improving quality of care for a targeted set of conditions at both the community and national levels.

The keynote speaker was Don Berwick, President of the Institute for Healthcare Improvement. In the afternoon, summit participants attended strategy sessions addressing the six crosscutting topics. These sessions were intended to further prepare participants in the relevance of particular interventions to their ongoing quality improvement efforts so that the subsequent working groups focused on the priority areas could be maximally productive. For those with experience in such interventions, these sessions afforded an opportunity to share what they have learned with a larger group.
