Defining Quality Care

Learn more about defining quality care and how it can be measured.

SGO Clinical Outcomes Registry

Medical societies have successfully developed and implemented specialty and subspecialty-specific clinical outcomes registries and quality improvement programs for years. The SGO Clinical Outcomes Registry (SGO COR) will provide membership with an effective tool to measure quality improvement and clinical outcomes research.

Quality Indicators

The SGO recognizes the importance of continuous quality improvement in clinical practice. SGO subject matter experts on ovarian, endometrial and cervical cancers studied current evidence-based research to determine a list of Quality Indicators for each of these malignancies.

Quality Organizations

The SGO continues to collaborate with fellow organizations to help improve the quality of women’s health care. We are working with the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) to test gynecologic oncology measures in their Quality Oncology Practice Initiative (QOPI) program. The SGO and the Commission on Cancer are working together to move toward NQF endorsement of gynecologic oncology measures utilizing NCDB data.

Here is a list of related agencies and associations that can serve as resources for health care quality measures.
