The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) have asked the health care community for feedback on the creation of a formal organization to govern data on health care quality to make it more useful to health care researchers, planners and providers. As reported in Government Health IT News, AHRQ, the Federal health care policy-makers, which studies health care performance measurement, issued a request for information on creating the organization, which it is calling a “national health data stewardship entity” (NHDSE). NHDSE would set national standards and offer guidance on sharing and aggregating data on health care quality and efficiency. It would be designed to be open and impartial in its decision-making, AHRQ said.
