The advisory group was appointed in response to the rapid growth of pay-for-performance and other "quality improvement" programs in the public and private healthcare sectors. These criteria were drafted in order to provide a framework for psychologists to use when evaluating or considering participation in quality improvement programs. In addition, the criteria are intended to provide guidance for advocacy efforts regarding the design and implementation of such programs.
