Measuring Quality for Person-Centered Accountable Care

New payment and delivery system models for Medicare, Medicaid and private coverage rely on accurate quality measures to improve care for patients. The Alliance held an in-depth briefing on what it means to design “person-centered” quality measures, and how the patient perspective can be used to improve how care is delivered to patients with complex needs.

The briefing drew from the goal statement and four essential attributes of a high-quality system summarized in “What Matters Most: Essential Attributes of a High-Quality System of Care for Adults with Complex Care Needs,” published by The SCAN Foundation, as well as ongoing work by the National Quality Forum and National Committee on Quality Assurance to develop person-centered quality metrics.
