NCQA Releases HEDIS Measures for ACOs

The National Committee for Quality Assurance has published Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set measures for accountable care organizations.

NCQA has specified 35 measures for ACOs. The technical specifications help ACOs define populations for ACO measurement, follow appropriate sampling and data collection methods and report ACO performance to NCQA. All ACOs are eligible to submit measure results, which will enable NCQA to create performance benchmarks and track ACO improvement over time. NCQA has also published complementary technical specifications to help ACOs collect and report their quality performance in standardized ways.
