IOM Proposes Standardized Quality Reporting Measures

The Institute of Medicine (IOM) released April 28 recommendations for a set of 15 core measures that would standardize similar measures across federally administered quality reporting programs. IOM specifically recommended this set for use in the meaningful use, accountable care organization, quality improvement, and other health care financing and delivery system innovation programs.

IOM recommended that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) adopt this set of measures to significantly reduce the quality reporting administrative burden on providers, hospitals, and the health care system overall. The proposed core measure set would allow for direct comparisons of quality measures across states and institutions. Further, the set would focus collected metrics on health outcomes and health system performance, rather than technical aspects of health care processes. Lastly, the committee called on HHS to collaborate with the U.S. Department of the Treasury to use the recommended measure set for hospitals and health systems to demonstrate their community benefit contributions.

Please contact Beth Feldpush, DrPH, senior vice president of policy and advocacy, at bfeldpush@essentialhospitals.org or 202.585.0111 with any questions.
