Quality at ACEP

Comments Sought on Federal ED Transitions Report

The National Quality Forum is seeking comments on its draft report, Emergency Department Quality of Transitions of Care Measurement Framework. As a nonprofit, membership organization & a consensus-based entity, NQF brings together multistakeholder groups - including ACEP - to reach consensus on critical issues to improve health & healthcare through quality measurement. This specific project aims to identify ways to measure & improve patient transitions of care into & out of the ED, & ultimately make the process more patient-centered, while enhancing value & reducing cost. Comments will be accepted at this link through June 26.
