AHRQ’s National Quality Measures Clearinghouse Now Represents Public Health Quality Aims
AHRQ’s National Quality Measures Clearinghouse (NQMC) now tags measure summaries corresponding to its Population Health Measure Domains with one or more of nine Public Health Aims for Quality. These quality aims, selected by the HHS Public Health Quality Forum (PHQF), give a description of the characteristics on what quality should look like in public health. The nine quality aims are intended to guide public health practices to ensure quality for improving population health outcomes. The nine aims are effectiveness, efficiency, equity, health-promoting, population-centeredness, proactiveness, risk-reducing, transparency and vigilance. They serve as aspirational characteristics to guide quality goals (for example, program design and implementation, management and governance, or policy research) when fulfilling a public health mission. NQMC’s Glossary provides additional information about PHQF’s public health aims for quality.
