Despite best practice recommendations for managing eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE), variation in care exists.We used established methodology for quality indicator development to identify metrics to define quality for the treatment of EoE.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.We identified highly valid EoE quality indicators for adult gastroenterologists, which can be used for quality improvement with resulting benefits for patient outcomes.
