Performance measures for contraceptive care: what are we actually trying to measure?
Christine Dehlendorf, Helen Bellanca, Michael Policar

Over the past two decades, there has been increased attention to quality in health care, including the use of standardized measures to track performance within health care institutions, by plans and by individual providers [1]. These measures are a means to document quality of care so as to allow comparisons by consumers, payers and others. In addition, they can be used to incentivize quality improvement through such means as linking physician payments to their performance on quality measures. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) furthers this trend, with an emphasis on a pay-for-performance model based on quality and effectiveness measures.
