Thereare six dimensions of quality. The paper identifies safety as part ofpatients’ assurance to quality healthcare. To provide safe care,while avoiding harm to the patient is considered to be a part ofhealth care performance measurement. Communication factors appear tobe consistent at the forefront, and are viewed to be part ofcorrectable safety incidents. In healthcare, those aiming atimproving safety are directed more at the failures andinsufficiencies (Ricciardi, 2015), Safety as part of the dimension ofquality is also directed at avoidance of injuries to patients fromthe health care intended to offer help to them.

TheRichard Ricciardi’sarticle“Ambulatory Patient Safety” from the Journal of Nursing CareQuality, the health insurance coverage saw millions of people in theUnited States became insured through the implementation of AffordableCare Act (ACA). First time primary care or other forms of ambulatorysettings ensured renewed attention is placed upon emerging evidencesof quality research in provision of clinical health care practices(Walshe &amp Smith, 2011). This article by Richard Ricciardi uses anumber of evidence, which include opportunities to improve patientcare experience with quality research evidence showing that over 62%of the patients admitting that they experienced timely appointmentsin receiving treatment. Additionally, the paper is evidenced by toolsand quality research, which enhances safe primary care and quality.Safety as a dimension of quality is backed up by the use of similartools, for example, “TeamSTEPPS” and primary care healthassessment.

Inconclusion, from the article, in my analysis of the requiredcharacteristics of quality measurement, durability is essential inprovision of better healthcare. Quality measurement based on thearticle is based on serviceability, perceived quality, conformance,and reliability of healthcare (Ricciardi, 2015). From the article, Igained the essence of ambulatory safety research methods and efforts,the involvement of opinion and consultation with the nurses, andresearch aimed at implementing best practices in patient health care.
