2013 Annual Progress Report to Congress: National Strategy for Quality Improvement in Health Care [US] – July 2013

Submitted by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services

“The initial National Quality Strategy, published in March 2011, established three aims and six priorities for quality improvement (see Figure 1). The National Quality Strategy’s first annual progress report to Congress, published in April 2012, elaborated on these six priorities and established long-term goals and national tracking measures to monitor quality improvement progress. The 2012 report also identified three strategic opportunities for improvement, which cut across all six priority areas. This second annual report provides updates on public and private payers’ collaborative efforts to align quality measures, progress against national tracking measures (where possible) and establishment of aspirational targets (as needed), private-sector successes in each of the six priority areas, and progress on each of the three strategic opportunities.”
