Attributes

Attributes

Search QMN’s comprehensive repository of quality measures by disease, measure steward, and quality program. Within a quality program, further identify measures by various attributes such as measure steward, NQF endorsement status, and measure type including patient-reported outcomes measures. Quickly compare versions of a quality measure across quality programs.

When a quality measure is created by a measure developer, its specifications may be altered when adopted into quality programs or submitted for endorsement. Avalere organizes all the versions of each quality measure into an Avalere Synthesized Measure® (ASM). This ASM presents a normalized view of measure specifications that maps how each unique measure created by a measure developer is used in quality, accreditation programs, and public reporting. QMN shows how a measure may differ across versions and provides a longitudinal view of how the measure has evolved over time.

In very complex programs such as the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS), QMN allows users to not only review measures by collection type (i.e., reporting option), but also includes hundreds of custom measures from qualified clinical data registries (QCDRs) that can be compared to and synthesized with CMS measures.

Gain access to the National Committee for Quality Assurance’s (NCQA’s) Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set® (HEDIS). HEDIS, a proprietary measure set, is one of healthcare’s most widely used performance improvement tools. 190 million people are enrolled in plans that report HEDIS results.
