The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) — in partnership with the National Quality Forum (NQF) — have officially formalized the Core Quality Measures Collaborative (CQMC) to improve health care quality for every American.

 

Dr. Adams, chair of AGA’s Quality Measures Committee, has been appointed as a co-chair of the CQMC Gastroenterology workgroup. The workgroup is tasked with reviewing and making recommendations for a revised, updated gastroenterology core measure set.

 

The CQMC is a multi-stakeholder, voluntary effort created to promote measure alignment and harmonization across public and private payers. The collaboration aims to add focus to quality improvement efforts, reduce the reporting burden for providers and offer consumers actionable information to help them make decisions about where to receive their care.
