This article presents our principles for developing performance measures to assess the quality of ambulatory care. The measures were developed as part of a project for developing and evaluating methods to promote ambulatory care quality (DEMPAQ). We describe our design for the performance measures, present examples of the DEMPAQ review criteria, and show the formats we used to feed back information to physicians. We conclude by presenting the results of our appraisal of the performance measures showing how evaluation can aid in the interpretation of measurement findings.
