Description

Getting to Measures That Matter

In 2012, an NQF Measure Gap Analysis identified that measures of person- and family-centered care are significantly lacking across the healthcare continuum, particularly patient-reported outcomes. In 2014, NQF will convene a multistakeholder group to develop specific recommendations for performance measurement to address person- and family-centered care, including patient-centered communications, shared decisionmaking, the concordance of care plans with patient preferences, values, and goals, and measures based on patient-reported outcomes. The specific goals of this project are to envision ideal person- and family-centered care (not constrained by current care delivery models) as a framework for performance measurement, and to make short- and intermediate-term recommendations to measure performance and progress on ideal person- and family- centered care.
