As highlighted by the Healthcare Association of New York State (HANYS) in May 2016, the “…chaos of the current healthcare measurement environment” calls for healthcare providers to report hundreds of measures to government, commercial payers, accreditation agencies, professional societies, registries, and other organizations. While groups like HANYS work to lobby for a more consolidated approach to metrics and reporting, the RHIO wants to assist member organizations today in maintaining a consolidated, updated location for metrics issued by various entities.

The data provided in the Community Measures Crosswalk begins with the CMS Master List, issued by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services. We have started the process of identifying those measures that practices in our community have a need to access by adding tabs for MACRA, PCMH, FQHC, HEDIS, GRIPA, and more. Over time, new tabs will be added for individual payer programs, as well as other organizations or programs that issue metrics determined to be useful to the healthcare community. We anticipate each tab to be updated quarterly, or more often, as significant metrics updates are published. 

This information source will be a living set of documents. Comments and suggestions should be sent to: cmc@grrhio.org.
