MNCM Announces Final COPD Workgroup Members

MN Community Measurement (MNCM) is excited to announce the final selection of participants for the COPD measure development workgroup. The project focuses on the development and testing of a performance measure using an appropriate COPD patient-reported outcome (PRO) as a measure of physician practice outcomes.

This new project works through the National Quality Forum (NQF) Measure Incubator, which is an innovative effort that facilitates efficient measure development and testing through collaboration and partnership. By connecting groups interested in particular measure concepts with measure development experts, financial and technical resources, and data, the Measure Incubator seeks to address important aspects of care for which quality measures are underdeveloped or non-existent.

The measure development workgroup meetings will occur in a virtual environment and are scheduled for:

  • May 25, 1:00 – 3:00 pm CST
  • June 9, 2:00 – 4:00 pm CST
  • July 7, 2:00 – 4:00 pm CST
  • July 21, 2:00 – 4:00 pm CST
