The Ethical Force program® Oversight Body

The Ethical Force Program® Oversight Body is responsible for selecting topics for performance measure development as well as reviewing and approving all research programs and products. Oversight Body members have been selected to share their diverse perspectives on the health care delivery system, but at Oversight Body meetings each member is asked to set their "institutional hat" aside and participate in improving the health care system on behalf of everyone. Therefore, Oversight Body members are not official representatives of the organizations from which they have been drawn. Ethical Force Program® products should not be construed as official policy positions of these organizations.
