Quality Performance Measures


Quality performance measures seek to measure the degree to which evidence-based treatment guidelines are followed, where indicated, and assess the results of care. The use of quality measurement helps strengthen accountability and support performance improvement initiatives at numerous levels. The Child Quality Performance Measures and the Adult Quality Performance Measures are two group measures that are used to demonstrate a variety of activities and health care outcomes for specific populations that fall under these two Quality Performance Measures groups.
