The NQF Measure Incubator facilitates efficient measure development and testing through collaboration and partnership. Engage with the Measure Incubator® through NQF’s Learning Collaborative, Innovation Challenges, or by incubating measures that are meaningful to patients and providers.
NQF’s Learning Collaborative is a forum of diverse stakeholder organizations that are united in their commitment to improve measure development. Participants in the Learning Collaborative propose innovative and agile solutions to leading measurement challenges, identify important gap areas where needed measures are few or non-existent, and share best practices in measure development.
Through Innovation Challenges, NQF members and others in the measure development community are invited to propose innovative and agile solutions to leading measurement challenges. Innovation Challenge winners receive a cash prize and are invited to present their novel ideas on a national webinar hosted by the NQF Learning Collaborative. Beginning in early 2018, submissions by runners-up will be featured as permanent content for the Learning Collaborative.
From October 16-November 15, 2017, the National Quality Forum (NQF) invited NQF members and other stakeholders to submit innovative and agile approaches to incorporating one or more Principles for Making Health Care Measurement Patient-Centered in performance measurement. Five Innovation Challenge winners received a cash prize and a national platform to share their ideas through the NQF Learning Collaborative. Review the winning submissions.
In 2016, the NQF invited members and others in the measure development community to submit their ideas to improve quality measurement, responding in particular to challenge areas and measurement gaps identified by Measure Developer working groups. Review the winning submissions.
