Figure 1-2. Conceptual framework for a national quality measurement and reporting system

The conceptual framework is presented as a series of boxes, beginning on the left with 'Purpose'; an arrow points to the next box to the right, 'National Goals.' Double-headed arrows point back and forth between 'National Goals' and three boxes stacked one above the other to its right: 'Measuring and Reporting,' 'Evidence Base' and 'Quality Improvement.' Double-headed arrows also point between 'Evidence Base' and the boxes above and below it. The last box on the far right side of the framework is 'Adoption'; double-headed arrows point back and forth between this box and 'Measuring and Reporting,' 'Evidence Base' and 'Quality Improvement.'
