Performance Measurement 

HRSA defines performance measures as an indication of an organization’s performance in relation to a specified process or outcome. Performance measurement is a central component of the TRG CQM Program. Based on the needs of the community we serve, a subset of measures have been prioritized for our regional quality management program. The data is used to identify and prioritize QI projects, to routinely monitor the quality of care provided to consumers, and to evaluate the impact of changes made to improve the quality and systems of HIV care.
