Quality Improvement

"Working for the Best Ear, Nose, and Throat Care" is the core mission of your Academy because it is the core mission of every practicing otolaryngologist-head and neck surgeon. Your Academy is committed to bringing you the resources that you need to provide safe, effective, patient-centered, timely, efficient, and equitable care for your patients.

Evidence-based products developed by otolaryngologists for otolaryngologists are needed for our specialty to meet the demands of payers, accrediting bodies, and maintenance of certification and licensure programs, so that our members can succeed in the changing healthcare marketplace. As otolaryngologists–head and neck surgeons we must engage in creating and implementing clinically valid quality measures and take the lead in defining what “quality care” means for our specialty. Please take the time out to view our resources applicable to you and your practice. 

If you don't find the patient safety and quality improvement resources that you are looking for on our website, please contact us at We'll help you find the answer to your question and improve the resources for all Academy members.
