NQF to Launch New Tools Focused on Using Quality Measures for Improvement
Date:7/18/2013

Washington, DC (PRWEB) July 18, 2013

The National Quality Forum (NQF) will soon launch two tools during a July 26th webinar (http://bit.ly/15GUZNK) designed to help users navigate the many healthcare quality measurement and reporting resources available to them. Developed with support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the Field Guide to NQF Resources and QPS Version 2.0 allow users to quickly and easily access the information they need to support their quality measurement, reporting, and improvement efforts.

“The Field Guide to NQF Resources and QPS Version 2.0 are designed with the end-user in mind. With generous support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, we were able to create two dynamic and easy to use tools, along with a number of new and helpful resources that we hope will provide a great benefit to those using quality measures to improve health and healthcare,” said Christine K. Cassel, MD, president and CEO of NQF.

The Field Guide to NQF Resources is a dynamic, online resourse designed to help those involved with quality measurement and improvement more quickly find NQF resources that can be useful to them. It presents easy-to-understand explanations about quality measurement and NQF’s role. Each explanation is accompanied by a list of related resources to provide further information about the topic.    

These resources include a newly-developed glossary or “phrase book” which defines terms and phrases related to measurement in plain language, and infographics that illustrate the intricacies of quality measurement.

NQF will also launch QPS Version 2.0 (http://www.qualityforum.org/QPS), an enhanced version of NQF’s search tool that allows users to find NQF-endorsed measures and related information to support t
