Quality Priorities

Kidney Care Quality Alliance

The Kidney Care Quality Alliance (KCQA), funded by KCP, was created in 2005 as an independent organization with the sole purpose of developing quality measures for use in the dialysis care setting.  Through KCQA, we have developed National Quality Forum (NQF) -endorsed quality metrics to track performance and stimulate improvement.

KCQA is guided by a Steering Committee and has a broad-based membership of leading stakeholders in kidney care.
