NQF joins The Joint Commission as an affiliate

Editor's Note

The Joint Commission, on August 16, announced a strategic affiliation with the National Quality Forum (NQF) in an effort to accelerate improvements across the continuum of patient care and change the focus from competing measures to advancing key outcomes.

The NQF will maintain its independence in developing consensus-based measurement standards, implementation guidance, and practices that benefit all stakeholders.

The Joint Commission notes that the affiliation will bolster national and international accreditation and certification processes to be more evidence-based, data-driven, and outcomes oriented.
