IDSA, HIVMA Join in Development of Core Quality Measures
As health care moves toward a more value-based system, there is increasing need for alignment among public and private payers on quality measures to support new patient-centered payment delivery system reforms. In a collaborative effort, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP), primary care and physician specialty groups, including IDSA and HIVMA, and consumer and employer groups developed seven core quality measures that will support greater quality improvement and reporting across the health care system. 
 
The goals of the collaborative effort were to establish broadly agreed upon core quality measures that allow for less complexity in reporting for clinicians, decreased overall costburden for consumers and the health care system, and high-quality care for patients.
 
The core measure sets will be reviewed on an ongoing basis by the collaborative group. The seven core quality measures are in the following areas:
 
  • Accountable Care Organizations/Patient Centered Medical Homes/Primary Care
  • Cardiology
  • Gastroenterology
  • HIV/Hepatitis C
  • Medical Oncology
  • Orthopedics
  • Obstetrics and Gynecology
 
More information on the core measures is available from CMS here
