Improving Quality Measures Workgroup Overview

Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ)
Health Care Financing Administration (HCFA)

The focus of this group will be on developing the "tool box" of quality measures and risk adjustment methods used by Federal agencies, particularly those that reflect outcomes of care. The work group is developing an inventory of all of the measures and risk adjustment methods being used by Federal agencies, documenting their uses, strengths and weaknesses, and examining how to institute appropriate risk adjustment methods to account for factors outside the control of the delivery system.
