An Evaluation of the Use of Performance Measures in Health Care – RAND Health Technical Report – 2011

“NQF [National Quality Forum] engaged the RAND Corporation to conduct an independent examination of the use of performance measures, with particular interest in the use of NQF-endorsed measures. The goal was to better understand
• the current state of performance measure use across the broad spectrum of end-user types
• areas in which gaps in measures exist that hinder the end users’ ability to apply measures to support the achievement of their desired goals
• how the larger measurement enterprise (i.e., measure developers, measure endorsers, foundations and government agencies that support measure development and implementation) might better support the use of performance measures.”
