National Quality Measures Clearinghouse
The National Quality Measures Clearinghouse (NQMC) database provides access to specific evidence-based, health care quality measures and measure sets. NQMC provides structured, standardized abstracts containing information about measures and their development; a utility for comparing attributes of two or more quality measures in a side-by-side comparison; and links to full-text quality measures (when available) and/or ordering details for the full measure. The database is searchable by disease, treatment, organization, or domain (access, outcome, patient experience, and process). It is sponsored by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
