American Academy of Emergency Medicine

Quality Standards Committee

Committee Focus

AAEM has joined National Quality Forum (NQF) as an organizational member to provide input on quality measures that affect emergency medicine.

The National Quality Forum is a not-for-profit, nonpartisan, membership-based organization that works on improvements in health care by convening working groups from the public and private-sectors.  

NQF endorsed measures are considered the gold standard for health care measurement in the United States and are submitted for adoption to Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

In response to membership in NQF, the AAEM board of directors established the Quality Standards Committee to review NQF measures.
