Development of National Priorities in Performance Measurement

National priorities in healthcare quality and performance measurement involve input from many different stakeholders.

National Quality Strategy

The National Quality Strategy was established by the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and has required the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to set priorities to increase access to high-quality, affordable health care for all Americans.

National Priorities Partnership

The National Priorities Partnership (NPP) is a collaborative of 51 major national organizations which brings together public- and private-sector stakeholder groups in a forum to balance the interests of consumers, purchasers, health plans, clinicians, providers, communities, states, and suppliers with the goal of achieving better care, affordable care, and healthy people and communities. The NPP offers consultative support to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) on setting national priorities and goals for the National Quality Strategy.

Measure Applications Partnership

The Measure Applications Partnership (MAP) is a public-private partnership convened by the National Quality Forum (NQF) to provide input to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) on the selection of the best available performance measures for public reporting and performance-based payment programs, and to encourage the alignment of public and private sector performance measurement efforts.
