Gordon Chairs Group That Will Examine Quality

There's a new blue-ribbon commission in town — called the Forum for Health Care Quality Measurement — and it's expected to try to come up with a response to a recommendation by President Clinton's now-defunct advisory group on health care: to figure out, once and for all, how to measure quality and report the results to the public.

The key issues for the Quality Forum are two old gremlins: how to measure outcomes across plans and providers and how to explain those outcomes in lay terms to purchasers.

The panel is chaired by Gail Warden, CEO of Henry Ford Health Care System in Detroit.
