Quality Measures Data Collection Project

The Consortium collected quality measures around breast cancer screening and treatment from participating healthcare providers. These measures were chosen by the Consortium's Advisory Boards based on the Advisory Board's experience of quality metrics in this area and by review of the published medical literature regarding measures that indicate best quality care.
