Measure Types & Sources
The WCHQ Performance & Progress Report features different types of measures from multiple sources.
The WCHQ Performance & Progress Report features ambulatory care measures that are exclusive to WCHQ. Physicians, data analysts and quality specialists from the WCHQ membership have developed these ambulatory care specifications that capture all patients and all payers.
The WCHQ Performance & Progress Report features measures from the National Cardiovascular Data Registry (NCDR) of the American College of Cardiology Foundation. The NCDR is the preeminent cardiovascular data repository, providing evidence-based quality improvement solutions for cardiologists and other medical professionals who are committed to measurement, improvement, and excellence in cardiovascular care.
The WCHQ Performance & Progress Report features patient experience measures developed by the Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) program. Administered by the U.S. Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, this public-private initiative creates standardized surveys that ask consumers (patients) to report on and evaluate their experiences with healthcare.
The WCHQ Performance & Progress Report features measures developed by The Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS). This society supports cardiothoracic surgeons in providing the highest quality patient care through education, research, and advocacy.
