A new National Quality Forum (NQF) report recommends that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) develop a core set of standardized measures to assess the quality of home and community-based services (HCBS). Millions of Americans with significant health needs use these services—which include help with bathing and dressing, medication management, food preparation, transportation, and other activities—to help them live more independently at home or in the community of their choice.
