• The National Quality Forum (NQF) is committed through its Measure Incubator™ to foster learning and improvement in the measure development process. As part of the 2017-2018 Learning Collaborative Patient-Centered Measurement Webinar Series, NQF is holding its 2017 Innovation Challenge focused on patient-centered healthcare measurement.

    From October 16-November 15, 2017, NQF invited NQF Members and other stakeholders to submit innovative and agile approaches to incorporating one or more of the American Institutes’ for Research (AIR) principles for patient-centered performance measurement—including patient-driven, holistic, transparent, comprehensive and timely, and co-created with patients. This framework was developed with broad stakeholder input and leadership from AIR. We solicited submissions that present measure development, implementation, and/or reporting/benchmarking approaches focused on one or more of these principles.

    NQF will provide cash awards for up to five submissions selected by an expert panel, including Learning Collaborative members and representatives from AIR. Winning submissions will be presented in winter 2018 as part of the 2017-2018 Learning Collaborative Patient-Centered Measurement Webinar Series. Innovation Challenge winners will be notified via email by December 15.

    All 2017 submissions will join the 2016 Innovation Challenge submissions as part of the NQF Learning Collaborative. Thank you for your innovative ideas!
