As healthcare reform continues, the industry’s headlong shift from fee-for-service to a pay-for-performance model means quality improvement projects have become more top-of-mind for hospitals and healthcare systems, and this means that clinical metrics are more important than ever.

The Community Metrics Cross Walk team is now providing links to the most updated documents for your review as you plan your data analytics program. 

Previous: 2016 Community Measures Crosswalk [Release Date: July 1, 2016]

The data provided in the 2016 Community Measures Crosswalk begins with the CMS Master List, issued by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services. We identified those measures that practices in our community needed to access by adding tabs for MACRA, PCMH, FQHC, HEDIS, GRIPA, and more. 

The Community Measures Crosswalk Workgroup is a subgroup of the Rochester PCMH Collaborative. Members include:

  • Deb Blanchard, RRHS
  • Diane Dale, Canisteo Valley Family Medicine
  • Cynthia Korpal, URMC
  • Martha Osowski, URMC
  • Nancy Buffum-Herman, FLPPS

Community Resources

Health information technology (HIT) is changing the way that health care is delivered in our community, in New York State, and across the country. The goal of HIT adoption and meaningful use is to enable improvement in health care quality, increase affordability and advance health care outcomes by supporting medical decisions and the delivery of coordinated, preventive, patient-centered care.
