ABSTRACT
The author reports that hospital boards are increasingly linking executive compensation to quality of care metrics. However, in a survey of hospital boards, only 44 percent of boards mention quality as important in the performance evaluation of hospital chief executive officers (CEO). Less than two-thirds of boards were found to discuss clinical quality at meetings. INSET: QUALITY IMPROVEMENT MAP.
