|Abstract:||The rising burden of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) has the potential to have a negative impact on the quality of care delivered to patients with IBD. Quality of care has been described by the World Health Organization as "the extent to which health care services provided to individuals and patient populations improve desired health outcomes." Variation in care has been identified as a key barrier to achieving quality of care in IBD. Assessment of quality of care attempts to minimize variation in care. Quality indicators have been developed in IBD as a minimum standard of care according to evidence-based guidelines. Models of care to achieve and maintain quality include integrated care, participatory care, and value-based health care. In this review, we outline current approaches to the assessment of quality of care in IBD and explore models of care currently being used to achieve and maintain quality.|
