The National Quality Forum (NQF) Board of Directors has endorsed 14 patient safety measures with a focus on complications. The measures address a range of quality concerns, including medication safety, venous thromboembolism, surgical safety, and care coordination. The measures include only those that have been endorsed for at least three years and are now undergoing NQF endorsement maintenance. The ongoing evaluation and updating of endorsed measures ensures they are current and relevant to NQF’s patient safety portfolio. In all, 27 measures were evaluated against NQF’s endorsement criteria, with 14 receiving endorsement status. Three measures are still under consideration.
