Call for Public Comment: HIV/AIDS Performance Measures

The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) is soliciting comments on a set of quality measures that focus on HIV/AIDS, for use at the individual provider and system level. The proposed measures will be considered for endorsement by the National Quality Forum (NQF) and for use in various care settings including the CMS Physician Quality Reporting Initiative (PQRI). 

Please review and comment on the measures on the NCQA Website. Public comment will close on Dec. 14. 

The draft measures were developed by the Infectious Diseases Society of America/HIV Medicine Association, the American Medical Association-convened Physician Consortium for Performance Improvement (PCPI), and the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). HIVMA members Judy Aberg, MD, and Michael Horberg, MD, co-chaired the panel that developed the measures.

All comments submitted will be reviewed by NCQA, the PCPI, HRSA, and HIVMA/IDSA prior to measure finalization.

Contact a member of the HIV/AIDS Performance Measures Project Team at with any questions.
