Learn about ASH Committees on Quality and Practice

  • The Committee on Quality promotes the highest quality care of patients with hematologic diseases and is responsible for overseeing and implementing the ASH Executive Committee-approved quality initiative, including but not limited to the development of clinical practice guidelines; tools and resources to aid dissemination and implementation of the guidelines including pocket guides, teaching slide sets, clinical pathways, patient versions, educational modules, and adaptation efforts; quality performance measures; quality toolkits; educational programming during the ASH annual meeting; promotion of research in quality and health care outcomes among hematologist and others; response to policy-related efforts and representing the Society at quality forums and meetings. 
  • The Committee on Practice is concerned with all issues affecting the practice of hematology. The Committee communicates with other organizations that have programs and policies that affect hematology practice. With appropriate review and approval by the Executive Committee, the Committee on Practice responds to practice-related issues by formulating positions on pending federal legislation, regulatory issues, and private insurance developments.
  • The Quality Measure Oversight Subcommittee, a subcommittee of the Committee on Quality, coordinates the identification, prioritization, development, and management of a set of quality measures that aims to improve the quality, effectiveness, and efficiency of hematology care that patients receive.
  • The Subcommittee on Quality Improvement Education and Training, a subcommittee of the Committee on Quality, establishes and coordinates the identification, prioritization, development, and management of resources and programs which aim to improve the quality improvement (QI) education and training available to practicing hematologists.
  • The Subcommittee on Stewardship and Systems-Based Hematology, a subcommittee of the Committee on Quality, coordinates the development of sessions, programs, educational materials, publications, and other activities designed to further ASH’s goal of encouraging stewardship of resources, enhancing patient safety, and promoting the concept of “systems-based hematology” as a viable career path for hematologists.
  • The Reimbursement Subcommittee, a subcommittee of the Committee on Practice, ensures that ASH addresses federal legislation and regulation affecting reimbursement for practicing clinical hematologists.
