    About the Challenge

    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. See below for submission details and evaluation criteria (PDF).

    NQF received 32 submissions for the 2017 Innovation Challenge. Winning submissions were selected by an expert panel, including patients, Learning Collaborative members, and representatives from AIR.

    In 2018, we will begin featuring the 2017 Innovation Challenge entries, along with 2016 Innovation Challenge entries, as permanent content for the NQF Learning Collaborative. Thank you for your innovative ideas!
