Measure Concepts Under Discussion
PQA Measures

Each year PQA and its stakeholders identify measure concepts that may be appropriate for development into fully specified performance measures. PQA measures are developed by small, technically proficient Measure Development Teams (MDTs) and Task Forces (TFs) who have applied for or been invited to work on developing specific measure concepts based on their individual skills and experience. MDT and TF members meet via conference line and webinar each month to discuss and develop aspects of the new measure concepts using a consensus-based approach. MDTs and TFs benefit by having their development work reviewed by larger groups, Stakeholder Advisory Panels (SAPs). They may also receive input from the Patient & Caregiver Advisory Panel (PCAP), Implementation Advisory Panel (IAP), and Risk Adjustment Advisory Panel (RAAP).

Once finalized, the MDT or TF will recommend the measure concept to the Quality Metrics Expert Panel (QMEP) for evaluation and refinement.  View current year measure concepts for development.
