• The National Quality Forum’s (NQF) mission is to lead national collaboration to improve health and healthcare quality through measurement.

    We strive to achieve this mission by:

    • Convening key public- and private-sector leaders to establish national priorities and goals to achieve healthcare that is safe, effective, patient-centered, timely, efficient, and equitable
    • Working to ensure that NQF-endorsed standards will be the primary standards used to measure and report on the quality and efficiency of healthcare in the United States
    • Serving as a major driving force for and facilitator of continuous quality improvement of American healthcare quality
