Why should I get my measure endorsed by NQF?

Because measures endorsed by NQF have met rigorous requirements, they are often preferred for use in national, state, and local programs that measure, report, and pay more for better healthcare performance. NQF endorsement includes a thorough evaluation of the measure by a multi-stakeholder Steering Committee, a public comment period, and voting by NQF’s membership and Board.
