Slide 11. Consensus on Criteria Definitions

  • Validity:
    • Measures must be supported by scientific evidence or, where evidence is insufficient, by expert consensus.
    • Measures must support a link between:
      • Structure and outcomes of care.
      • Structure and processes of care.
      • Processes and outcomes of care.
    • The measure must represent an aspect of care that is under the control of health care providers and systems.
    • The measure should truly assess what it purports to measure.
    • Measures supported by evidence from unpublished data should be considered for inclusion.
