The Institute of Medicine (IOM) is an independent, nonprofit organization that provides unbiased and authoritative advice to decision makers and the public. In its 2001 report titled “ Crossing the Quality Chasm: A New Health System for the 21st Century,” the IOM identified 6 aims for improving health care.1 These included making care more safe, effective, patient centered, timely, efficient, and equitable. In their article, Hu and Bigby present evidence that identifies potential practice gaps in 4 of these 6 IOM aims.
