Last week, CMS awarded seven organizations new cooperative agreements to partner with the agency in developing meaningful measures for Medicare’s Quality Payment Program (QPP). These agreements, authorized under Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 1995 (MACRA), are the first funding supporting public-private efforts to develop measure for the QPP.
“CMS looks forward to collaborating with these clinicians, patients, and other key stakeholders to identify quality measures that will meaningfully impact patient care,” said Administrator Seema Verma. “Through our Meaningful Measures initiative, CMS is committed to advancing measures that minimize burden on clinicians, improve outcomes for patients, and drive high-quality care. We need the expertise and firsthand experience of those on the front lines to develop measures that achieve these goals.”
