Performance Measurement Workgroup Information
In general, this Work Group will develop recommendations for the Commission on measures that are reliable, informative, and practical for assessing hospital quality. The Performance Measurement Work Group will address a number of quality topics including but not limited to :
Value-based payment (integration of cost, quality, population health and outcomes)
Patient Experience and Patient-centered Outcome measures
Potentially Avoidable Utilization (PAU)
Development of Statewide Targets and Hospital Performance Measurement
Subgroups to the Performance Measurement Workgroup
Readmissions Subgroup to the PMWG
In collaboration with key hospital, payer, consumer and other
stakeholders, HSCRC is convening a subgroup of the Performance Measurement
Workgroup during 2019 to develop updated pay for performance approaches for
reducing readmissions in Maryland to support the goals of the TCOC Model.
Specifically, this entails considering new approaches to evaluate Maryland
hospital performance relative to the nation, while at the same time affording the
State the opportunity to be aggressive and progressive in its program(s).
