Lefebvre to Serve on National Quality Forum Committee
NC AHEC Program Associate Director Ann Lefebvre, MSW, CPHQ, (photo right) was asked to serve as a member of the National Quality Forum’s (NQF’s) Health Workforce Steering Committee for the 2013-2014 Prioritizing Measure Gaps project.
The goal of this project is to provide multi-stakeholder guidance on priorities for performance measure development and endorsement to address the triple aim of NQF by focusing on areas that have repeatedly indentified as needing more substantive performance measurement.
The NQF operates under a three-part mission to improve the quality of American health care by:
- building consensus on national priorities and goals for performance improvement and working in partnership to achieve them;
- endorsing national consensus standards for measuring and publicly reporting on performance; and
- promoting the attainment of national goals through education and outreach programs.
