PCPCC Responds to CMS Request for Stakeholder Input on the Quality Measure Development Plan

On March 1, 2016 the PCPCC responded to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) request for stakeholder input on the Quality Measure Development Plan.

Overall, PCPCC supports the general framework for the Quality Measurement Development Plan (QMDP) as proposed, within the framework of CMS’ six Quality Strategy Goals. In particular, we agree with CMS' strategic approach to include multi-stakeholder groups to assist in generating creative solutions for use of measures across multiple payers and delivery systems, from both the private and public sectors. In our comments, the we provide additional input on the following sections of the Operational Requirements of the QMDP:

  1. Multi-payer Applicability of Measures
  2. Quality Domains and Priorities
  3. Care Coordination
  4. Patient and Caregiver Experience
  5. Population Health and Prevention
  6. Efficiency and cost reduction
  7. Applicability of Measures Across Healthcare Settings
