The Physician Consortium for Performance Improvement said the measures (available at www.physicianconsortium.org) will help physicians prevent infections in the hospital environment, assess and treat prostate cancer and provide standardized breast and colorectal cancer pathology reports. In total, the group has approved 184 quality measures. Founded in 2000, the Consortium has developed performance measures that cover conditions that represent 80% of Medicare spending.
