Acute coronary syndrome (ACS) is a severe clinical manifestation of ischemic heart disease with a high risk of death. The quality of care provided by the health system and medical providers to patients with ACS in daily clinical practice determines the likelihood of desired health outcomes or prognosis. This review provides an overview of several key issues in the quality of care for ACS, including how to measure the quality of care for ACS and the main strategies to improve the quality of care for ACS patients in both the acute and chronic phases. Efforts to improve the quality of care for ACS through specific programs in Western countries and in China are also described.
