Selected members will meet regularly to discuss and prioritize complex, emerging healthcare issues identified for 2021, including:

  • Virtual Healthcare Quality
  • Patient Access to Care
  • Patient Reported Outcomes

As leader of Telligen’s Quality Measures and Reporting team, Wisham provides oversight on all federal projects related to quality measure specifications, testing, data validation, and registry audits. This will be her third year representing Telligen on the NQP Leadership Consortium.

“This is a pivotal time for healthcare quality,” says Wisham “I’m grateful for the opportunity to collaborate with other thought leaders and contribute my voice toward some of the nation’s highest-priority healthcare issues.”

What is the National Quality Forum?

NQF is a not-for-profit, membership-based organization that gives all healthcare stakeholders a voice in advancing quality measures and improvement strategies that lead to better outcomes and greater value.

Why is it Important?

Measures endorsed by the NQF are considered the “gold standard” standard for healthcare measurement in the United States. The federal government and multiple private entities use NQF-endorsed measures because of the rigor and consensus process behind them. Today, about 300 NQF-endorsed measures are used in more than 20 federal public reporting and pay-for-performance programs as well as in private-sector and state programs.
