The quality of health care for children in the United States is far from optimal; assessing levels of care is an essential first step to identify areas for change. The Quality Measurement, Evaluation, Testing, Review, and Implementation Consortium (Q-METRIC) at the University of Michigan is devoted to developing quality measures designed to gauge how consistently everyday care for children measures up to established best practices. The Q-METRIC team, led by principal investigator Gary Freed, MD, MPH, has conceptualized and tested more than 50 quality measures, working with expert panels, research clinicians, and data specialists.
