Person and Family Centered Care
This is the second in a series of reports describing NQF measure evaluation projects for person- and family-centered care (PFCC) measures. Ensuring that all persons and their families are engaged as partners in care is one of the six priorities of the National Quality Strategy, Person- and family-centered care encompasses patient and family engagement in care. This includes shared decision-making and preparation and activation for self-care management, and the outcomes of interest to patients receiving healthcare services, including health-related quality of life, functional status, symptoms and symptom burden, and experience with care. In this phase of work, the Committee reviewed 28 measures of functional status and outcomes, both clinician and patient-assessed. The functional status measures utilize data from various tools and resources including clinical assessments (medical record), electronic instruments, electronic registries, and patient information. This phase of work included process, outcome, and patient-reported outcome measures.
