2018 Public Comment Period on Draft Measures - American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA)

The American Society of Anesthesiologists® is currently accepting comments on draft quality measures under development. The comment period is open from June 11 - July 10, 2018.

The public comment is a vital component in the measure development process and is intended to ensure relevant stakeholders have the opportunity to share their input during the ASA quality measure development cycle. The measures were developed by the ASA Core Measure Development Group (CMDG), under the direction of the Committee on Performance and Outcomes Measurement (CPOM). These draft measures do not indicate a final ASA policy, direction or approval. The public comment period is an important step in determining the future of each measure. For questions, please contact the Department of Quality and Regulatory Affairs at qra@asahq.org.
