The National Quality Forum (NQF) is critical to ensuring the reliability and effectiveness of the quality and performance measures used in American health care today. Funding for NQF is an investment in improving patient care, making patients, providers and clinicians accountable for care, and making care quality and performance transparent. It is gratifying the House Ways and Means has decided to further the nation’s investment in NQF’s work for another three years. FAH supports extending NQF’s funding and the Committee’s modernization of the organization's role. This move provides long-needed authority to recommend the removal of measures to assure Medicare beneficiaries continue to have metrics that drive improvements in quality and performance.
