Member Councils 


Participating in one of NQF’s eight Member Councils is one of the chief ways that members can help advance a meaningful agenda to improve healthcare quality through measurement and public reporting. The Councils are organized by stakeholder group, and afford NQF members a strong voice in crafting national solutions to quality concerns. They also provide opportunities for NQF members to connect with other healthcare leaders involved in quality improvement.

The eight Member Councils convene regularly by conference call and meet in person at NQF's Annual Conference to discuss matters of interest to NQF and the organizations they represent. These interactions offer NQF members additional opportunities to build important relationships with their peers in the healthcare industry. In addition, cross-council discussion is encouraged through meetings and conference calls that address ongoing and emerging issues, such as safe practices and health information technology.

NQF Council Leadership

The elected chairs of the Member Councils advise NQF leadership on the organization’s overall strategy and direction, provide input to the Consensus Standards Approval Committee on proposed consensus standards, and serve on the Leadership Network that oversees NQF’s education and award recognition programs.

A Multi-Stakeholder Membership

Each Member Council provides unique experiences and views on healthcare quality that are vital to NQF’s success in improving the quality of healthcare in America. You can get involved in your Council’s activities and cross-Council projects by navigating through the Resources menu.
