ASPS Performance Measures

Performance measures are tools that help clinicians measure or quantify healthcare processes, outcomes, patient perceptions, and organizational structure and/or systems to improve the quality of care for patients.

ASPS Performance Measures follow a rigorous development process that includes a multidisciplinary work group, management of conflicts of interest, and patient input. That process can be viewed here.
