Standards/Standardized Performance Measures - Comparison

How do the standards and standardized performance measures differ?

Any examples are for illustrative purposes only.

The standards and standardized measures are not the same yet work together to improve performance. The standards are the principles and expectations for quality service in a well-run firm. The Performance Measurement and Improvement Standards guide firms in establishing a performance improvement process. The HCSS Standardized Performance Measures are precisely defined quantitative tools used to monitor and improve the firm's performance over time.
