AAFP Outlines Quality Measurement Strategy for Primary Care

Six Principles Aim to Guide Future Development

The AAFP has released a new position paperaimed at helping steer the future development and use of quality measures in initiatives related to practice improvement and physician payment.  

It's an important step at a critical point in time, said AAFP Board Chair Michael Munger, M.D., of Overland Park, Kan.

"As the move to value-based care delivery continues, quality measurement has stepped to the forefront," Munger told AAFP News. "This position paper will provide the AAFP with the guiding principles with which to advocate for standardized meaningful measures that are relevant for the patient without causing significant disruption of clinical workflows."
