In 2004, the Commission for Health Improvement (CHI) was superseded by the Commission for Healthcare Audit and Inspection as the body responsible for inspecting hospitals. This report, carried out by two independent authors funded by a grant from The King's Fund, analyses CHI's work and asks how lessons learned from CHI's experience could inform the next round of change. It highlights areas in which hospital inspection could be improved, such as establishing clearer standards and developing ways to assess the effectiveness of integrated care.
