On Wednesday, August 30, 2017, 12:00-1:00pm ET, NQF hosted a webinar for attendees to learn about new work from the NQF Measure Incubator™ that puts the patient’s voice at the center of quality performance measurement.

NQF and health data sharing and tracking online community PatientsLikeMe® will share results of new research funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to advance patient-reported outcome performance measurement models using feedback from online communities of thousands of patients. This is the first time that patient feedback on such a large scale has informed measure development and prioritization, marking an important step toward ensuring that measures reflect what is most important to patients.

Hear from a panel of experts about what this means for patients:

  • Shantanu Agrawal, MD, MPhil, president and CEO, NQF
  • Ben Heywood, MBA, co-founder and president, PatientsLikeMe®
  • Marc Boutin, JD, CEO, National Health Council
  • Helen Burstin, MD, MPH, FACP, chief scientific officer, NQF
  • Tracy Spinks, senior director, quality innovation, NQF
