The primary objectives of this project are to (1) develop measures for use in the Inpatient Psychiatric Facility Quality Reporting Program (IPFQR) and (2) to maintain quality measures for five CMS hospital quality programs: IPFQR, Promoting Interoperability (PI), Hospital Inpatient Quality Reporting (IQR), Hospital Outpatient Quality Reporting (OQR), and Ambulatory Surgical Center Quality Reporting (ASCQR).
CMS is working to shift the basis of payment away from the volume of care delivered towards the value of care. Mathematica plays a key role in this effort by helping CMS develop, test and implement valid and reliable clinical quality measures that rely on data collected over the course of care delivery. For the inpatient psychiatric facility setting, Mathematica supports CMS in developing and implementing patient-reported outcome performance measures (PRO-PMs). Under this contract, Mathematica also works with CMS to maintain a set of hospital-based pay-for-reporting measures.
