Shantanu Agrawal Discusses How the National Quality Forum Impacts Health Care

June 14, 2019

Shantanu Agrawal leads the National Quality Forum - one of the most important organizations that you’ve probably never heard of. NQF was originally created during the Clinton Administration as a tool to promote and ensure patient protections and health care quality through measurement and public reporting for Medicare. Today their work touches all patients using three tenets: improvement, accountability, and transparency. In this episode, Chip and Shantanu discuss why NQF was needed, the role it fills today, and how the organization is uniquely positioned to lead quality efforts for health care’s high-tech future.
