INTRODUCTION:Despite best practice recommendations for managing eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE), variation in care exists.METHODS:We used established methodology for quality indicator development to identify metrics to define quality for the treatment of EoE.RESULTS:Among 29 proposed quality indicator statements, 9 (31%) were adopted as highly valid across all categories. Two (22%) of these statements were identified as having existing or suspected quality gaps.DISCUSSION:We identified highly valid EoE quality indicators for adult gastroenterologists, which can be used for quality improvement with resulting benefits for patient outcomes.
