CMS Finalizes Its Quality Measure Program

Shared by Radhika Narayanan | 1 55 0 | about 1 year ago

Senior officials at the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) on Tuesday posted the agency’s finalized Quality Measurement Program (QMP) on its website. In posting the announcement, Kate Goodrich, M.D., director of the Center for Clinical Standards & Quality at CMS, said in a statement the following: “CMS aims to drive improvement in our national health care system through the use of quality measures and periodic assessment of the impact of such measurement. The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) established payment incentives for physicians and other clinicians based on quality, rather than quantity, of care. We recently released the proposed regulation to implement these payment incentives, and more information is available here: https://federalregister.gov/a/2016-10032. The Quality Measure Development Plan is an essential aspect of this transition, which will provide the foundation for building and implementing a measure portfolio to support the quality payment programs under MACRA.”
