Hospital Care: Outcomes & Efficiency Measures Phase I 

Project Status: Completed

National Voluntary Consensus Standards for Hospital Care: Outcomes and Efficiency

This NQF project endorsed two measures suitable for both public accountability and quality improvement related to outcomes and efficiency of hospital care. Phase I examined solely hospital readmission measures; Phase II more broadly reviewed potential measures of hospital outcomes including, for example, quality of the hospital transition, improvement in health-related quality of life and functional status, palliative care symptom control, surgical outcomes, and efficiency.
