National Quality Forum Appoints Trenton Health Team Director Dr. Ruth Perry to Healthcare Workgroup and Task Forces
Date:8/15/2013

Trenton, NJ (PRWEB) August 15, 2013

The National Quality Forum (NQF) has appointed Dr. Ruth Perry, executive director of the Trenton Health Team, to its national healthcare workgroup and two subcommittees, where she will provide her expertise to inform national healthcare quality. Dr. Perry will serve as a subject matter expert for the Dual Eligibility Beneficiaries Workgroup, part of the NQF’s Measure Applications Partnership (MAP). The workgroup focuses specifically on quality of care for Medicare/Medicaid dual eligible beneficiaries across the care spectrum, developing quality measurement frameworks to improve health outcomes for dual eligible beneficiaries.

In addition to this three-year appointment, Dr. Perry will serve on two new time-limited task forces sponsored by MAP: the Health Insurance Exchanges and the Medicaid Task Forces, which will provide input on the Health Insurance Exchange Quality Rating System and the Medicaid Adult Core Measure Set.

The National Quality Forum is a nonprofit public service organization committed to transforming the healthcare system by developing and recommending performance measures to evaluate how well services are delivered.

MAP is a public-private partnership that supplies the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) with informed healthcare knowledge to help achieve the department’s three goals: better care, healthy people/community and affordable care. Dr. Perry also shares these goals as part of THT’s mission to transform healthcare for Trenton’s significant Medicaid and Medicare population.
