Through the AGA Roadmap to the Future of Practice, AGA offers this Hepatitis C Clinical Service line to support high-quality patient care.
Hepatitis C (HCV) can be spread through blood transfusions and contaminated needles, but for a substantial number of patients, the cause is unknown. HCV may lead to cirrhosis or scarring of the liver. There are treatments available for HCV.
Measure Your quality
Several mechanisms are available for capturing quality data related to the care of patients with HCV.
