The article considers the aim of the American Medical Association (AMA) to limit the influence of the National Quality Forum (NQF) on the U.S. healthcare sector. One of the resolutions in the agenda of the AMA is the resistance to any NQF expansion that may affect the Physician Consortium for Performance Improvement's role in measure development. NQF Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Janet Corrigan said the resolution calls for changing the NQF power structure so physicians have more influence.
