our September Forum on

The Essential Role of Healthcare Quality Improvement

Featuring remarks by

Shantanu Agrawal, M.D., President and CEO,National Quality Forum


As delivery and payment reform continue to reshape the healthcare landscape, the nation needs reliable, scientifically valid measures to determine what high-quality care is and identify areas for improvement. Join Shantanu Agrawal, MD, MPhil, president and CEO of the National Quality Forum (NQF), to explore the essential role of quality improvement in making care safer, more effective, and more affordable for all stakeholders. Hear how NQF is evolving to focus on measures that add value to patients, physicians, and providers while reducing burden. Get a first look at NQF’s newest work on high-priority national issues such as antibiotic stewardship, opioid stewardship, and health equity, and learn about opportunities to get involved with NQF and its 430 organizational members.

Dr. Agrawal joined NQF as President and CEO on January 30, 2017. He is a board-certified emergency medicine physician who has worked in both academic and community settings. Prior to joining NQF, Dr. Agrawal was the deputy administrator and director for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS) Center for Program Integrity (CPI) and led a new effort to improve the physician experience with Medicare by working to minimize the administrative tasks with which doctors contend. He also was one of the main architects of CMS’ recently released strategy and action plan to address the national opioid misuse epidemic.
