This article reviews what is known currently about quality of care for women in the United States, illustrates some of the innovations in quality measurement that are being tested, and identifies the challenges that have been encountered. Although the focus of the article is on the measurement of quality for women's health care, many of the issues that are raised apply more generally to assessing quality for all populations.
