Coherent, robust performance measurement system needed

e (AQA), ACP aims to improve health care quality and patient safety through a collaborative process in which multiple stakeholders agree on a strategy for measuring, reporting, and improving performance at the physician level. ACP is pleased that the starter set of performance measures proposed by the IOM comprise the AQA's 26 'starter' clinical performance measures for the ambulatory care setting."

In further evaluating the IOM report, ACP agrees that federal leadership is necessary to overcome the limitations of the current system, particularly in terms of funding. Sustained, adequate funding is needed for a structure capable of encouraging multiple performance measurement initiatives and sustaining patients' interest.

Perhaps most importantly -- as the IOM makes clear in its report -- society's investment in learning is necessary to understand how measurement can best accelerate health care quality improvement.
