Quality Improvement Primer
A Roadmap to Meaningful Health Care Quality Measurement
During the 2016 election season, the Council of Accountable Physician Practices urged political candidates at all level to focus on three critical health policy issues.

- Value-based payments
- Robust and coordinated use of health information technology
- Improved and harmonized quality measurement and reporting
