NQF Endorses Pulmonary and Critical Care Measures – National Quality Forum [US] – 31 July 2012

“Washington, DC – the National Quality Forum (NQF) Board of Directors has endorsed 19 measures related to pulmonary conditions and the critical care setting. The measures focus on treatment processes and outcomes for asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and pneumonia.”

“The measures include those that have been endorsed for at least three years and are now undergoing NQF endorsement maintenance. The ongoing evaluation and updating of endorsed measures ensures they are current and relevant to NQF’s pulmonary/critical care portfolio. In all, 35 measures were evaluated against NQF’s endorsement criteria; 19 received endorsement status. Three were new measures and 16 were maintenance measures. Further harmonization efforts are underway for a sub-set of measures. Three measures are still under review.”
