Reflecting NQF’s commitment to continuous quality improvement, NQF hosted a Kaizen event on May 18 and 19 to explore opportunities for a more agile and efficient consensus development process (CDP) for measure endorsement.
NQF’s endorsed performance measures are essential to quality improvement and pay-for-performance programs in the public and private sectors. Over this two-day event, NQF, in collaboration with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), addressed:
More than 40 invited healthcare stakeholders from the public and private sectors—including experts from CMS and other federal agencies, NQF’s standing committees, and organizations that develop measures—participated. Members of the public had the opportunity to dial in and provide comment during certain portions of the Kaizen event.
All potential changes to the CDP will be open for public comment in June 2017.
Please contact NQF staff with any questions.
