By highlighting the intangible, personal, contextual, and illusory nature of "quality," the authors reconceptualize quality improvement as a pluralistic and moral journey. They imagine a new era of quality improvement in which patients and health care providers work together to understand and achieve quality. The authors recommend, for the path forward, a "travel kit" of 10 crucial elements-compassion, deliberation, flexible goals, ownership, the engagement of patients, the inclusion of payers, the involvement of learners, feedback loops, the fostering of learning, and the application of different sources of knowledge-to reframe quality improvement in a new era of learning.
