Academic medical centers and clinicians have been slow to embrace continuous quality improvement. The Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York has created a new Department of Health Policy that combines an academic research mission with an administrative mission to demonstrate improving quality of care. This article discusses the conceptual framework that undergirds this new effort, its organizational structure and initial agenda of activities, and why we believe it will succeed in engaging academic physicians in quality improvement.
