Advancing Quality Through Consequential Measures

Make Advances to Health Care Quality in Your Practice

Health care providers can find some degree of security in the knowledge that the tools for achieving improvements remain grounded in stable fundamentals. Quality measures that support your mission while providing superior care and cutting costs are the key to improving quality.

Performance measurement isn't just for health plans. Physicians are increasingly participating in performance measurement activities, especially in the context of pay-for-performance initiatives that are taking shape across the country. Measurement at all levels of the system is fast becoming the norm in health care.

NCQA did not create the field of health care performance measurement, but they have refined the process and led the development of objective measures since the mid-1990s when the standardized measurement tool, the Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS), was broadly adopted by the industry.

Since then, HEDIS measures have expanded from a narrow collection of process measures to a comprehensive set that assesses a range of important health care interventions and outcomes. The current measures address preventive services, chronic disease management, behavioral health care, appropriateness/overuse of services and value, as well as preventable hospitalizations and patient satisfaction.
