Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Health care reform 2010 and continuous quality improvement processes
by Cabrera, Maria, M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2013, 48; 1527533
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this study was to study the effect of the Health Care Reform Bill 3590 signed into law on March 30, 2010. Data was collected by reading the Bill 3590 itself as well as by reviewing notable literature within the industry. Many continuous quality improvement processes exist within the document.

The results indicate that with many of the laws not yet implemented, it may be too premature to determine if the new law will have a significant overall improvement on the health care system. The current reform proposal does include many essential elements of Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) processes. While it is to be expected that all issues will not be addressed all at once, it is a step in the right direction of benefiting a greater portion of all Americans effectively and efficiently while eliminating unnecessary waste through the incorporation of continuous quality improvement processes in health care reform.
