Quality Measures

A cornerstone of modern service delivery is having in place appropriate quality measures that track health care outcomes as a means to improve public health and accountability. As the health care economy moves away from a fee-for-service model, developing adequate quality measures for family planning and sexual health services will be increasingly important.

NFPRHA's Work

NFPRHA focuses on quality improvement and measurement in an effort to promote greater recognition about the important role of family planning and its necessity in the health care delivery system. NFPRHA has been working with accrediting agencies on policies to publicly measure and validate family planning and specifically contraceptive services.
