Background and aims Perception of quality of care is important in the management of patients with chronic diseases, particularly inflammatory bowel disease. Aims and methods This longitudinal study aimed to investigate variations of the Quality of Care through the Patientsâ Eyes (QUOTE-IBD) questionnaire scores one year after the basal evaluation in the Studio Osservazionale quaLitÃ cUre malatTIe crOniche intestiNali (SOLUTION-1) study. Results Of the cohort of 992 patients, 936 were evaluable. The QUOTE-IBD score overcame satisfactory levels of more than the 80%, overall and in all subdomains except for the âContinuity of Careâ sub-dimension (mean, 8.3; standard deviation, 1.49), scored satisfactory only by 34% of the patients. No significant changes in satisfaction were recorded overall, or considering patients subgroups. Significant differences were found at the end of the follow-up between physiciansâ and patientsâ perceptions of quality of care, with the former over-rating their performance in âContinuity of Caresâ and under-rating âCostsâ, âCompetenceâ, and âAccessibilityâ sub-domains of the score (p < 0.05 for all). Conclusion Perceived quality of care in a large cohort of Italian patients with inflammatory bowel disease remains unchanged after one-year follow-up and was not significantly affected by disease activity or therapeutic interventions. Differences between physiciansâ and patientsâ perceptions of quality of care should be taken into account.
