(redirected from quality outcome framework)

QOF

A national UK framework (system) for measuring, achieving and rewarding both the meeting of clinical and management quality targets of primary care provision, and the improving of services for patients, as part of the General Medical Services contract. Under so-called “new GP contract” in 2004, GP practices are rewarded based on extensive data collection from GP practices, which are calculated into Assessor Validation Reports. QOF is a system of financial incentives for improving quality of primary care within the GMS contract for GP services, and forms the basis on which GPs are paid.
