The use of quality and performance measures in public reporting, value-based purchasing and alternative payment models is altering clinical practice by providing incentives to improve quality measures performance and provide high-value care. Varying stakeholders seek to understand these measures, assess their business impact and use the information to guide decision-making.
This need for industry understanding is why Avalere is currently developing a first-in-class database (Quality Measures Navigator™) of quality measures, which spans measure developers, endorsers and users. This one-stop-shop brings together a longitudinal view of the quality measure space, providing insight into measure specifications and maps.
Before our product’s launch, we invite you to listen to Debbie Lucas, as she explains the complex world of quality measurement.
