National Voluntary Consensus Standards for Hospital Care 2007: Additional Performance Measures

This NQF project evaluated and endorsed additional performance measures to include a broader array of services and care contexts, with particular emphasis on morbidity and mortality measures, anesthesia and surgery related events measures, measures of utilization rates for risky or often unnecessary procedures, surgical volume and mortality measures, readmission rates and LOS, pain assessment, and pediatric asthma. These additional areas of focus have expanded the usefulness of NQF-endorsedTM hospital performance measures.
