Welcome to Stand for Quality

We represent a diverse cross-section of private health care organizations who are calling on Congress to support the performance measurement reporting and improvement enterprise. Stand for Quality's recommendations - Building a Foundation for High Quality, Affordable Health Care: Linking Performance Measurement to Health Reform - are based on extensive input and dialogue from diverse stakeholders across the healthcare system.

Stand for Quality's current efforts are focused on a long term strategy to 1) extend current funding for measure endorsement and 2) to secure funding (an additional $20 million/year) for measure development. Specifically, funding will support ongoing endorsement of measures for high-priority conditions, endorsement of measures that cross settings and conditions, support new areas of measurement such as value-based purchasing and registries, and work to facilitate the transition to eMeasures.
