4 The Buying Value Project Buying Value is an RWJF-funded initiative of private health care purchasers— employers, leading business health organizations, and union health funds – that was launched in 2012.  Mission – Private purchasers contribute to better health and lower health costs by buying on value rather than on volume.  Objective – Enable widespread adoption of value purchasing in the private sector through alignment of measures among private purchasers and with federal and state public programs  Strategy  Measure Alignment Campaign – Public and private purchasers, health plans, providers, and care delivery systems commit to core measure sets developed through multi-stakeholder consensus processes nationally, and at the regional or state level.  Help for States/Other Stakeholders in Creating Aligned Measure Sets – Online Measure Selection Tool and hands-on help. 4

5 Buying Value Milestones Website www.buyingvalue.org (2012) -- Basic info on value- purchasing – Primer, Legal Memo on Anti-Trust Issueswww.buyingvalue.org “Starter” Core Measure Set (March 2013) – National purchasers, consumers, CMS & payers (health plans) Study of 48 Measure Sets in Use at State Level (2013) -- Only 20% of measures used by more than one program; 25% of shared measures modified in some way; 39% of measures either non-standard or homegrown Model for Consensus Core Measure Sets -- A multi-stakeholder, two-tier (national and regional or state) process for consensus core measure sets Online Measure Selection Tool (9/2014; Updated 1/2015) – web-based spreadsheet linked to measure databases that enables those creating measure sets to view in one place a multitude of important decision factors. 5

6 The State of (Mis)Alignment 6 2013 Buying Value study of state quality measure sets:  Only 20% of measures used by more than one program  23% of shared measures modified in some way  39% of measures non-standardized or “homegrown” The result? Tremendous variation in the way we define and evaluate “quality” across the country.

7 Measure Alignment Work: Federal Agencies To Cut 94% of Measures in Seven Key Areas! 7 7

8 Other Measure Alignment Work CMMI State Innovation Model (SIM) Grants – 38 states & $1 billion in federal funds to develop & test innovative payment and service delivery models in public programs for use in statewide multi-payer programs with aligned measure sets. IOM Committee on Core Metrics for Better Health at Lower Costs – Report originally due in fall, 2014 – Now expected late February Commercial Measures Alignment Project – AHIP initiative, staffed by NQF, to align measures with CMS – Report originally expected in fall, 2014 8

20 Maine Health Management Coalition | Maine Health Management Coalition-Foundation 11 Bowdoin Mill Island, Suite 260 | Topsham, ME 04086 | (207) 899-1971 | www.mehmc.org | www.getbettermaine.org Maine’s Measure Alignment WG Identified Ten Criteria for Measure Inclusion: Current Feasibility Evidence-based and Scientifically Acceptable Setting Free Usability / Adaptability Patient Experience Has a Relevant Benchmark Financial / Incentivization Improving this Measure will Translate into Significant Changes in Value Durability Aligned with Other Measure Sets

21 Maine Health Management Coalition | Maine Health Management Coalition-Foundation 11 Bowdoin Mill Island, Suite 260 | Topsham, ME 04086 | (207) 899-1971 | www.mehmc.org | www.getbettermaine.org Maine’s Measure Alignment WG How to evaluate or score each measure with so many different criteria? Buying Value Tool allowed scoring each measure as to how well it meets each criteria: Yes = 2 points Somewhat = 1 point No = 0 points Summed points for each measure Used tally to guide final review of draft measures for inclusion Allows for adding comments to record decisions Made complex task easy and documentable

22 Maine Health Management Coalition | Maine Health Management Coalition-Foundation 11 Bowdoin Mill Island, Suite 260 | Topsham, ME 04086 | (207) 899-1971 | www.mehmc.org | www.getbettermaine.org Maine’s Measure Alignment WG Aligning with Other Measure Sets To shorten the list being considered, needed to identify measures most commonly used Many measures are similar but slightly different (e.g., Optimal Diabetes Care and Comprehensive Diabetes Care) Tool includes multiple federal measure set lists Allows inclusion of relevant local commercial and state measure sets Tool counts the highest overlap of reporting for identifying opportunities for alignment
