The Oakbrook Terrace, Ill.-based Joint Commission will begin a comprehensive test of nursing-focused performance measures to determine whether they can be used nationally to identify opportunities to improve the quality of patient care provided by nurses.

The project is being funded by a grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.

The integrated set of measures for hospitals address patient outcomes, nursing-centered interventions and system factors related to quality and safety.ÂÂÂ Testing during the next two years will examine whether the measures are reliable and feasible for use in hospitals, as well as the impact of the measures, when used together, on the safety and quality of care. The measures are endorsed by the National Quality Forum (NQF).

The Health IT Summits gather 250+ healthcare leaders in cities across the U.S. to present important new insights, collaborate on ideas, and to have a little fun - Find a Summit Near You!
