Enhancements Implemented to the NQMC Web Site!

  • NQMC Template of Measure Attributes: The updated NQMC Template includes the addition of two new fields; Type of Care Coordination and NQF Number. Also, values have been added to the existing Current Use and Measurement Setting fields to reflect developments in the quality measurement field.
  • NQF-Endorsed Measures Browse: This faceted browse feature is an enhancement of NQMC's former National Quality Forum (NQF) Browse feature. Use it to view measures represented in NQMC that have been endorsed by NQF. Find measures of interest by searching NQF number, NQF endorsement date, and/or narrowing results by making selections in the categories provided.
