The Quality Aligning Steering Committee (QASC) is a collaborative effort among existing quality alliances, government, physicians, nurses, hospitals, health insurers, consumers, accrediting agencies and foundations that works to improve the quality of health care across the United States. QASC works to ensure that quality measures are constructed and reported in a clear and consistent way that informs both consumer and employer decision-making, as well as the efforts of practitioners to improve. QASC will test approaches to combine summary information about providers from Medicare and private health plans, offering a more complete picture of providers than ever before. These provider-level measures will be available to regional collaborations to use in improving the quality of health care.
