NQF’s Measure Incubator is exploring innovative and agile approaches to incubate and test quality measures more efficiently—particularly in areas of health and healthcare that still do not have enough or the right kinds of measures to drive improvement. Following recommendations that emerged from a design session of interested stakeholders, NQF is creating a Measure Incubator “learning collaborative” to share evolving approaches and best practices in measure development.
Two newly formed workgroups are spearheading the design and
implementation of the learning collaborative:
The workgroups involve dozens of volunteers and are led by
committees that include healthcare leaders and measure development experts from
the public and private sectors. The groups meet bi-monthly by teleconference or

Incubator, or to discuss incubating a measure, please contact NQF at firstname.lastname@example.org.
