The National Quality Forum has been working to develop a set of measure concepts that would be relevant to diagnostic quality and safety.  This is the first step in developing actual measures that could be applied to assessing diagnostic performance.  The draft report is attached – the document describes the measurement framework for diagnostic quality and safety, related measure concepts/measurement areas, and cross cutting themes/recommendations developed by the project Committee.  The document can also be found on the draft report<http://www.qualityforum.org/WorkArea/linkit.aspx?LinkIdentifier=id&ItemID=84435> area of the NQF project page<http://www.qualityforum.org/Improving_Diagnostic_Quality_and_Safety.aspx>. The Public and Member Comment period is now open through July 12 at 6:00pm ET.

Following the comment period, the Committee will reconvene in late July to discuss and adjudicate comments, moving to a final report.  Questions can be directed to the NQF staff at  diagnosticaccuracy at qualityforum.org<mailto:diagnosticaccuracy at qualityforum.org>.
