The American College of Cardiology Foundation/American Heart Association (ACCF/AHA) welcomes letters to inform its ongoing work and encourages such correspondence about its performance measures. More specifically, all ACCF/AHA performance measure sets undergo a 30-day public comment period where anyone from the public can comment on proposed measures and the writing committee takes these comments into consideration during final deliberations. Because the ACCF/AHA performance measure development process is rigorous and involves several layers of review by the writing committee, external peer reviewers, and participating organizations in the document, it cannot respond to each issue raised after a performance measure set has been published. The information, however, is forwarded to the writing committee chair and oversight task force for review. If any issue is deemed by the ACCF/AHA to affect patient safety, it will be considered immediately. Otherwise, the information will be considered during the next update or revision of the performance measure.
