Notice to Our Users

Effective July 17, 2016, funding for NQMC was reduced as a result of Fiscal Year (FY) 2016 congressional budget cuts to the AHRQ's appropriation. Although the NQMC Web site remains online, content development and updating will be limited to cancer-related measures only. Contact Us with any questions.
