Nominations Sought by May 3 for AHRQ Quality Indicators Workgroups
AHRQ is seeking nominations by May 3 for individuals with knowledge of AHRQ’s Quality Indicators™, their technical specifications, and associated methodological issues to serve on two workgroups. The goal of each group is to provide feedback to AHRQ on making refinements to the QIs. Individuals can be nominated to either a time-limited workgroup or a standing workgroup, both of which will be convened by an AHRQ contractor. The time-limited workgroup will focus on specific clinical or methodological issues, while the standing workgroup will address broader issues related to the measurement cycle. AHRQ did not receive a sufficient response to a Federal Register Notice published on January 28 (Volume 78, No. 18, page numbers: 5810 and 5811) seeking candidates to serve on these workgroups; therefore, it is re-submitting this notice. Select to access the Federal Register notice. Self-nominations are welcome and should specify the workgroup of interest. Candidates may apply for both workgroups. Third-party nominations must indicate that the individual has been contacted and is willing to serve on the workgroup. AHRQ will contact selected candidates by May 17. For more information, contact Pam Owens at 301-427-1412 or Pam.Owens@ahrq.hhs.gov.
