NQF Releases Newly Endorsed Surgical-Care Measures


The National Quality Forum has released 21 newly endorsed surgical-care measures, addressing procedures such as esophageal resection and coronary artery bypass graft surgery.

The measures are part of the NQF's Surgery Endorsement Maintenance project, which launched in 2010 with the goal of identifying measures that specifically address surgical patients and procedures. These latest 21 measures are the final product of phase 1 of the project, which focused on cardiac surgery and the care and treatments associated with it.

Phase 2 will cover general surgery, as well as subspecialties such as neurosurgery and orthopedic surgery, according to the NQF.
