  • Be explicit about the perspective, output, and inputs used in measure:
    • What's the purpose, approach?
  • Develop measures to fill important gaps
    • When is it most important to incorporate quality measures?
    • Measures that use health outcomes as outputs
    • Measures for units of analysis other than hospital
