Dr. Farquhar is the Vice President of Quality, Research and Measurement for URAC an independent, nonprofit organization which is a well-known leader in promoting health care quality through its accreditation, education, and measurement programs. Through this position Dr. Farquhar strategic oversight and must oversee the work of the quality, research and measurement department that includes convening stakeholder committees and task forces for input into performance measure selection, data collection and analysis of client performance, reporting on the quality of client services and developing various methodologies to improve the quality of products offered by URAC. With over 33 years in the health care industry, Dr. Farquhar developed an aptitude and passion for the quality measurement and health care policy. As a result Dr. Farquhar started as a Health Scientist Administrator for the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. She then progressed to be Senior Advisor of the Quality Indicators Initiative, and eventually the Vice President of Performance Measures for the National Quality Forum, the first nurse to hold that position. As an expert in her field, Dr. Farquhar speaks in universities and conferences on the field of quality, performance measurement, nursing and public policy. Dr. Farquhar credits her success to her passion for helping people and the opportunity to be able to combine both her health care and business expertise in the most optimal way. In the future, Dr. Farquhar will be completing her six sigma certification which will further help URAC grow. In her free time Dr. Farquhar is an avid supporter of The Humane Society of the United States, the ASPCA, the Art League of Ocean City Center for the Arts and the Nature Conservancy.
