The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) requests information from the public (including health care delivery organizations, health information developers, payers, quality measure developers, clinicians, and health care consumers) about quality improvement measures designed to help health care organizations monitor initiatives aimed at: Improving patient understanding of health information, simplifying navigation of health care systems and facilities, and enhancing patients' ability to manage their health. Specifically, AHRQ seeks quality improvement measures in four domains: 1. Communication, 2. Ease of Navigation, 3. Patient Engagement and Self-Management, and 4. Organizational Structure, Policy, and Leadership. AHRQ is interested in measures that do not require patient survey data and that health care organizations are currently using, or have used in the past, to guide quality improvement activities designed to address these domains. AHRQ is also interested in information about relevant measures that are under development or are suggested for future development.

Agency: Social Security Administration, Agencies and Commissions
We are soliciting public input on whether and how we might revise the current Ticket to Work program rules. The Ticket to Work and Work Incentives Improvement Act of 1999 established the Ticket to Work program to allow individuals with disabilities to seek services to obtain and retain employment in order to reduce dependency on cash benefit programs. In creating the program, Congress found that eliminating barriers to work and providing individuals with real choice in obtaining services and technology to find, enter, and maintain employment can greatly improve the short and long-term financial independence and personal well-being of our beneficiaries. We want to explore improving our Ticket to Work program as part of our ongoing effort to help our beneficiaries find and maintain employment that leads to increased independence and enhanced productivity. If we propose specific revisions to our regulations, we will publish a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) in the Federal Register.
