About Our Measure Development

A new environment

Health care is changing fundamentally, driven by multiple forces:

  • Need to reduce costs and achieve more equitable distribution of care
  • New technologies
  • Renewed emphasis on quality and performance improvment

Leadership in a time of change

An undisputed leader in health care quality measurement and performance improvement, the AMA-convened Physician Consortium for Performance Improvement® (PCPI®) is here to develop state-of-the-art quality measures that are clinically relevant and grounded in a robust evidence base.

National Quality Forum

An integral step in the PCPI process is National Quality Forum (NQF) review and consideration of its measures. The majority of PCPI measures submitted to the NQF for endorsement have recieved it. Measure submission forms are submitted for consideration during a call for measures as outlined in the final work plan.
