• NQF is working with an array of stakeholders, data partners, and measurement developers to incubate and test needed measures.

    A collaboration with OptumLabs is providing access to its unique data assets to participating OptumLabs partner organizations for several measure projects, including:

    • University of Maryland—measures focused on inappropriate prescribing for dementia and Alzheimer’s disease;
    • AARP— measures addressing dementia/Alzheimer’s disease and homebound populations (AARP is a founding contributor to the NQF Measure Incubator™);
    • Mayo Clinic—risk categorization of patients with multiple chronic conditions, as a precursor to measure development for this complex population.

    PatientsLikeMe (PLM) with funding from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, will work with NQF to test the Forum’s proposed pathway to take patient-reported outcomes (PROs) to PRO-based performance measures.

    Minnesota Community Measurement will work through the NQF Measure Incubator™ to develop a patient-reported outcomes measure for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. The Measure Incubator received funding from GlaxoSmithKline to support this project.
