AHRQ Webinars on Feb. 21 and Feb. 23 Seek Input on Repository of Patient Registry Performance Measures
Registration is open for two AHRQ webinars to obtain input on the design and content of an online repository of standardized patient registry outcome performance measures. Comparing, aggregating and reporting clinical care data can be difficult due to variations in the types and definitions of outcome measures used in patient registries. To reduce these variations, AHRQ developed the Outcome Measures Framework as a generic model to develop harmonized outcome performance measures in specific disease areas. AHRQ is using the framework to develop standardized libraries of outcome measures for five conditions. Webinar participants will be asked for feedback on the proposed process for submitting new measures and the system’s search capabilities for existing measures. Register for the webinar on Feb. 21 from 2 to 3 p.m. ET, or register for the webinar on Feb. 23 from 11 a.m. to noon ET. Contact RoPR@ahrq.hhs.gov with questions.
