Quality Measurement

As the United States moves away from volume-based payment and toward value-based approaches to pay for health care, stakeholders need valid and reliable measures to evaluate the quality of clinical care that leverage rich clinical data sources without adding burden to our nation’s clinicians. 

At the same time, stakeholders must navigate and make sense of the glut of quality measures in the health care quality landscape. Mathematica is recognized as an innovator in the field of evidence-based measure development and brings agile yet rigorous approaches to bear on measure development, evaluation, and maintenance work. Our multidisciplinary team includes health care researchers, measurement science and psychometrics experts, clinicians, and clinical reporting standards and health policy experts. We apply this broad knowledge base to address challenges faced by quality measurement stakeholders and combine our expertise to develop and test measures. We have developed measures that are used in hospital quality reporting systems and the Merit-based Incentive Payment System and that are endorsed by the National Quality Forum (NQF). We are a trusted measure development, testing, implementation, and maintenance partner for federal agencies, medical specialty societies, states, and private health care organizations. Our approaches to development and testing are scalable and support endorsement by national consensus-based entities such as the NQF.
