Abstract

The Measuring What Matters (MWM) initiative identified 10 indicators of high-quality palliative and hospice care. Members of the AAHPM Research Committee, through a special series of articles, examined applications of the MWM quality indicators in research and practice settings. Many themes were present in these articles, including the important role of electronic health records in quality measurement, challenges and strategies for implementing and tracking measures over time, and the importance of identifying new measures. This article is the final commentary of the series and includes recommendations for next steps in quality measurement.
