The National Consortium of Breast Centers invites breast centers from across the United States to participate in its National Quality Measures for Breast Centers™ Program (NQMBC™). Released in April of 2007, the NQMBC™ Program offers facilities providing breast health care the ability to track and measure quality performance in more than 30 separate quality indicators. The most impressive component of this program is the ability of participants to enter data and immediately compare their performance on these measures with other participating breast centers around the country. Current participants use these comparison reports to identify where quality care already exists and where quality care improvements can be made.
The highest certification level - Certified Quality Breast Center of Excellence - is achieved by meeting the highest set of certification criteria. In addition to meeting the requirements to become a Certified Quality Breast Center, the Certified Quality Breast Center of Excellence applicant must have supplied 90% of the measures for which their quality breast center type should be able to measure performance** and performed above the 25th percentile. The data submitted must span two consecutive data periods* and the data periods for review for certifi¬cation must still be within the last three years from the date of the application. Breast Centers choosing to participate in this program will become involved in a national quality documentation program and possess the ability to compare themselves to all other NQMBC™ Program participants.
