KHC Webinar: Kentucky Core Healthcare Measures Set
Last year, the Kentuckiana Health Collaborative and Kentucky Department for Medicaid Services joined forces to launch the Kentucky Performance Measures Alignment Committee (PMAC), a public-private committee formed to create a common primary care measures set in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. The goals of the core healthcare measurement set are to establish broadly agreed upon priority quality measures for primary care and pediatric care providers that improve the quality and value of care, reduce provider reporting complexity, and align Kentucky’s healthcare measurement. The final measures chosen will be included on a core healthcare measure set. Ultimately, the expectation is for the measure set to be adopted by public and private organizations to better focus improvement efforts toward shared areas.
Subcommittees in five areas of focus have created a recommended measures set with 38 measures, less than half of the number of currently incented measures in Kentucky, which will be reviewed by a large oversight committee over the next couple of months. The KHC will host a webinar on July 26, 2018 when the core measures set is finalized, to introduce the set and answer questions about the initiative.
