1 Performance Measurement & Reporting: Future Directions Janet Corrigan, PhD, MBA President and CEO National Quality Forum

2 National Quality Forum Mission Improve the quality of American healthcare by setting national priorities and goals for performance improvement Endorse national consensus standards for measuring and publicly reporting on performance Promote the attainment of national goals through education and outreach programs 2

3 This Presentation at a Glance Key Components of Health Reform Aimed at Improving Quality and Affordability of Health Care National Quality Enterprise: Key Functions Role of the National Quality Forum 3

4 Health Reform Legislation Patient Protection & Affordability of Care Act (ACA) of 2010 –Rapid expansion of public reporting –Alignment of payment with value –Development of accountable care organizations American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009 –$32 billion to rapidly “wire” American healthcare 4

5 ACA Transparency Provisions Broad Plan for Public Reporting –Requires a clear federal plan to make performance information widely available. Hospitals and Ambulatory Surgery Centers –Expands Hospital Compare; includes information on the Value Based Purchasing (VBP) program; report on health care acquired admissions, hospital readmissions, and hospital charge data. Physicians –Requires development of Physician Compare website by January –Annually, physician ownership or investments in hospitals and manufacturers (by September 2013) will be published. Nursing Homes, Skilled Nursing Facilities, LTC Facilities –New information will be added to Nursing Home Compare by March Nursing home ownership by March

6 Public Reporting In 2009 more than half of Americans used the Internet to look up health information Source: CDC. National Center for Health Statistics 6

7 ACA Payment Reforms Physician Payment –Provides 5-year, 10% bonus for primary care and general surgeons in health professional shortage areas beginning in 2011 based on reporting of quality measures. –Medicaid primary care rates will be 100% of adjusted Medicare rates for 2013 and –Secretary establishes a payment modifier that provides for differential payment to physicians based on quality of care compared to cost. Must be budget neutral and program starts in Hospital Payment –Reduces payments for “excess” readmissions in selected conditions starting in FY –Establishes a hospital VBP program to start in FY –Reduces payment for hospitals in top quartile of national health care acquired conditions rate by 1% starting in Expansion of Value-based Purchasing –VBP pilots for long-term care; rehabilitation facilities; PPS-except cancer hospitals; and hospice to be implemented by

8 ACA Payment Reforms (cont’d.) CMS Innovation Center –Establishes an Innovation Center with the capacity to implement innovations program-wide that require review and assessment by the Office of the Actuary. –Center must be established by Piloting of New Programs –Authorizes a multitude of payment redesign programs to be rapidly tested and, as proven, expanded. –Bundled Payments, Shared Decision-Making, etc. 8

9 ARRA & ACA Delivery System Reform Build technological infrastructure necessary to improve quality and reduce costs –$30B in Medicare and Medicaid incentive payments linked to “meaningful use” of EHRS Promote integration of personal health care and population health –Community health teams Encourage development of clinically integrated health systems –Medical Homes/ Health Care Homes –Accountable Care Organizations 9

10 Accountable Care Organizations Patient-focused orientation –Follows the natural trajectory of care over time Directed at value –Quality, costs, and patient preferences Emphasizes care coordination –Care transitions and hand-offs Promotes shared accountability –Individual, team, system Addresses shared decision making –Attention to patient preferences Supports fundamental payment reform –Bundled payment for the episode of care 10

11 Quality Enterprise Functions: Contributions of NQF Establish National Priorities National Priorities Partnership Top 20 conditions Identify Measure Gaps Agenda for Measure Development and Endorsement Measure Development Endorse Measures, Practices, and SREs Over 600 measures covering all settings, including Safe Practices and SREs Build Data Platforms Health Information Technology Expert Panel Publicly Report Results Guidance for performance reporting on safety MAPs & Dashboard Align Payment and Other Incentives Analysis of measurement implications of various payment reform models Improve Performance Webinars Measures database Evaluate Measure use evaluation 11

12 Why Set National Priorities? Current state of performance measurement is a cacophony of well-meaning but uncoordinated signals National priorities help align strategies and efforts of multiple groups around common goals for improvement Drive fundamental change in the delivery system New link to ACA: –Secretary to establish and implement a national strategy to improve care delivery, health outcomes and population health 12

13 National Priorities Partnership 32 multi-stakeholder organizations: Consumers Purchasers/Employers Health Professionals/Providers Health Plans Accreditation/Certification Groups Quality Alliances Suppliers/Industry Community/Regional Collaboratives Public Sector: CMS, AHRQ, CDC, NIH, NGA Co-Chairs: Donald Berwick Institute for Healthcare Improvement Margaret O'Kane National Committee for Quality Assurance 13

14 Criteria for Selecting the Priorities © National Priorities Partnership Remove Waste Eradicate Disparities Eliminate Harm Reduce Disease Burden High Impact Areas 14

15 15 National Priorities Population health - Key preventive services - Healthy lifestyle behaviors Safety –Hospital-level mortality rates –Serious adverse events –Healthcare-Acquired Infections Care Coordination –Medication reconciliation –Preventable hospital readmissions –Preventable emergency department visits Patient/family engagement –Informed decision-making –Patient experience of care –Patient self-management Palliative Care: –Relief of physical symptoms –Help with psychological, social and spiritual needs –Communication regarding treatment options, prognosis –Access to palliative care services Overuse –9 major areas

16 Potential Areas of Overuse Inappropriate medication use Unnecessary laboratory testing Unwarranted diagnostic procedures Unnecessary maternity care interventions Unnecessary consultations Potentially harmful preventive services (USPSTF “D” list) Preventable hospitalization and ED visits Inappropriate non-palliative care at end-of-life 16

23 NTTAA National Technology and Transfer Advancement of Act of 1995 (NTTAA)  Defines the five key attributes of a “voluntary consensus standards-setting body” (i.e., openness, balance of interest, due process, consensus, and an appeals process)  Obligates federal government to adopt voluntary consensus standards (when the government is adopting standards)  Encourages federal government to participate in setting voluntary consensus standards NTTAA 23

24 24 Measurement & Improvement Paths NQF, 2002

25 NQF Consensus Development Process Call for nominations for steering committee and technical panels Call for measures Measure evaluation Member and public comment NQF member voting Consensus Standards Approval Committee (CSAC) Board of Directors endorsement Appeals Consensus Development Process Steps 25

26 NQF Evaluation Criteria Importance to measure and report What is the level of evidence for the measures? Is there an opportunity for improvement? Relation to a priority area or high impact area of care? Scientific acceptability of the measurement properties What is the reliability and validity of the measure? Usability Can the intended audiences understand and use the results for decision-making? Feasibility Can the measure be implemented without undue burden, capture with electronic data/EHRs? 26

27 Types of Quality Measures Process Outcome Structure/management Access Efficiency/cost Use of services (used as proxy for outcome, cost) Patient experience of care Composite (two or more measures combined into a single score) 27

28 Drive toward higher performance Shift toward composite measures Measure disparities in all we do Harmonize measures across sites and providers Promote shared accountability & measurement across patient-focused episodes of care: –Outcome measures –Appropriateness measures –Cost/resource use measures coupled with quality measures, including overuse Quality Measurement in Evolution 28

29 Patient-Focused Episodes of Care Model Population at Risk Evaluation & Initial Management Rehabilitation & Follow-up Care Clinical episode begins Appropriate Times Throughout Episode - Determination of key patient attributes for risk adjustment - Assessment of informed patient preferences and the degree of alignment of care processes with these preferences - Assessment of symptom, functional, and emotional status PHASE 1 PHASE 2 PHASE 3 End of Episode - Risk-adjusted health outcomes (i.e. mortality & functional status) - Risk-adjusted total cost of care Time 29

30 Episodes Model Measurement Domains Patient-level outcomes (better health) –Morbidity and mortality –Avoidance of complications (e.g., HAIs) –Functional status –Health-related quality of life –Patient experience of care Processes of care (better care) –Technical –Care coordination and transitions –Alignment with patients’ preferences; shared decision- making Cost and resource use (overuse, waste, misuse) –Total cost of care across the episode –Indirect costs 30

31 Patient-Focused Episodes of Care Model Patient-focused orientation –Follows the natural trajectory of care over time Directed at value –Quality, costs, and patient preferences Emphasizes care coordination –Care transitions and hand-offs Promotes shared accountability –Individual, team, system Addresses shared decision making –Attention to patient preferences Supports fundamental payment reform –Bundled payment for the episode of care 31
