THE NATION'S 3 leading health care accrediting organizations have established a council to ensure more efficient collection of health care performance measurements across all levels of the US health care system.
According to the collaborative agreement between the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO), the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), and the American Medical Accreditation Program (AMAP), the 15-member Performance Measurement Coordinating Council (PMCC) will work to ensure that procedures to measure health care performance are consistent, efficient, and useful for the many parties that need them to make important decisions about health care.
