Figure 2: CQG Series Analytic Framework to Summarize Applicable Areas for Each Topic

Closing the Quality Gap: Revisiting the State of the Science

Overview of new series of evidence reports on quality improvement strategies.
This figure illustrates how the elements of scope for each topic relate to one another, and provides a common framework across all topic areas in the series. On the far left the first element asks if the 'Topic emphasis [is to] close the quality gap?' This question is addressed by three elements: Information, Incentives, and Infrastructure/Delivery System. These three elements are directed at target audience(s). The target audiences can be at the macro level, which includes policy and delivery organization, or micro, which includes the clinician and the patient.
