New Information from AHRQ: May 23, 2001
The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) has announced that it is seeking proposals for developing a Web-based National Quality Measures Clearinghouse™ (NQMC).
AHRQ has set aside $8.4 million for this project, and expects to award a single contract which will span a period of four years. The project is the first step in the production of an integrated suite of Internet-based tools for health care providers, managers, and policymakers. The project will include developing a database backbone that will house the NQMC, which will be a significant enhancement of the Agency's CONQUEST library of quality measures, and ultimately the Agency's highly successful National Guideline Clearinghouse™ (NGC), developed in partnership with the American Medical Association and the American Association of Health Plans.
Questions and letters of intent are due June 6, 2001; proposals are due July 6, 2001. Select for information on downloading the RFP.
