NQF Statement on HHS Quality Goals

“The promised change from physicians, hospitals, and other providers being paid for the quantity of their care to the quality of their care is increasingly happening, and today’s announcement catapults that progression. In order for payment models based on value to really work, all providers need clear, consistent measures that drive improvements in care and provide meaningful information for patients, while being clinically relevant and actionable for providers. The healthcare community needs better measures faster. The more efficient NQF process is key to meeting this challenge.”
