Mission: Since 2000, pcpi has been a leader in convening experts to develop evidenced based performance measures that improve the quality of healthcare for stakeholders across all of healthcare. We are a trusted partner to over 70 major healthcare organizations and companies that are members of pcpi to support our mission of driving healthcare quality and improvement by connecting measurement, clinical registries, and quality improvement. We have developed over 300 performance measures, over 90 endorsed by the national quality forum (nqf), many of which are fundamental to federal reimbursement programs. We also have expertise in clinical registries, and in promoting quality improvement initiatives.
Programs: Develop scientifically valid performance measures: pcpi's measurement science program includes three distinct but well-integrated areas - measure development, measure specification and measure testing - each of which is essential to producing high quality performance measures ready for widespread adoption and implementation in electronic health records, registries and databases.
utilize clinical registries to drive optimal outcomes: our national quality registry network (nqrn) promotes a supportive regulatory environment for registries and advocates for increased interoperability between registries and other health information technology to spread leading practices among members and maximize the utility and value of clinical registries.
a spring and fall conference each year provides an opportunity to meet pcpi leadership and staff, network with fellow pcpi members, learn about the organization's current work and future strategies in measurement science, registries and quality improvement and join pcpi's efforts to improve the quality and efficiency of healthcare. The national clinical registry conference, co-produced by the national quality restistry network (nqrn) and council of medical societies (cmss), convened thought leaders, innovators, and influencers in the registry community to discuss changes in national healthcare policy, data interoperability, and improving patient health outcomes.
implement quality improvement initiatives: the pcpi quality improvement (qi) program facilitates the rapid access, sharing, learning, scale and spread of quality improvement methodologies as we convene the expertise of our members and leverage this knowledge across all healthcare stakeholders.
