CMS Integrated Chronic Disease Quality Performance Measurement at the Level of the Physician’s Office

The goal of the project as a whole was to define overall quality measures of physician performance with respect to chronic disease management and preventive care for older adults and to define strategies for quality improvement and physician recognition programs. Products that resulted included models of quality of care for diabetes and chronic disease care for older adults, a report on strategies for aggregate quality scoring, a report on chronic conditions among older adults and the definition of priority conditions for the model, and a report on lessons learned on physician performance measurement and reporting.
