Performance Measurement: Accelerating Improvement
Performance Measurement: Accelerating Improvement is the first in a new series of reports representing the latest phase in the Institute of Medicine’s effort on health care quality. This report, requested by Congress in P.L. 108-173, introduces a framework and implementation strategy for translating public and professional concerns about performance and accountability into measures of health care quality. In particular, it highlights a set of foundational measures for quality improvement and makes a compelling case for a more coherent system of measurement and reporting that can coordinate, guide, support, and enhance the multiple efforts now under way.
These series of briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on December 1, 2005 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
