Terms of Use


NMQF measures are intended to assist physicians and other clinicians in enhancing quality of care. Measures are designed for use by any clinician who manages the care of a patient for a specific condition, or for prevention. NMQF measures are not clinical guidelines and do not establish a standard of medical care, and have not been tested for all potential applications. NMQF encourages additional testing and evaluation of its measures. Neither the NMQF, nor its staff, directors or officers shall be responsible for any use of the measures.
