Take Notice

The AHRQ National Quality Measures Clearinghouse (NQMC, qualitymeasures.ahrq.gov) Web site will not be available after July 16, 2018 because federal funding through AHRQ will no longer be available to support the NQMC as of that date. AHRQ is receiving expressions of interest from stakeholders interested in carrying on NQMC's work. It is not clear at this time, however, when or if NQMC (or something like NQMC) will be online again. In addition, AHRQ has not yet determined whether, or to what extent, the Agency would have an ongoing role if a stakeholder were to continue to operate the NQMC. For any questions, please contact Mary.Nix@ahrq.hhs.gov.
