The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) is an independent, not-for-profit organization dedicated to measuring the quality of America's health care. The organization is governed by a Board of Directors that includes employers, consumer and labor representatives, health plans, quality experts, regulators, and representatives from organized medicine. NCQA's mission is to improve the quality of health care delivered to people everywhere. To achieve this goal, NCQA's efforts are organized around two activities, accreditation and performance measurement (report cards), which are complementary strategies for producing information to guide choice.
