2 More Groups May Be Formed To Push 'Quality'


The Advisory Commission on Consumer Protection and Quality in the Health Care Industry is expected to recommend adding a few more letters to the health care alphabet soup. The new ingredients are a private agency to develop quality measures and a public entity to recommend quality goals.

It's unclear where creation of the private group would leave the reigning quality ombudsman, the National Committee for Quality Assurance, and its Health Plan Employer Data and Information Set. NCQA has spent loads of time and scads of money creating its HEDIS measurements for quality assessment.

The public organization would identify and promote research, serve as a public forum and develop a quality awards program.
