Statewide common measures set now open for public comment
In June 2014, Washington State Governor Jay Inslee appointed a diverse group of leaders to serve on the Performance Measures Coordinating Committee (PMCC) to recommend standard statewide measures of health performance to inform public and private health care purchasing, as well as propose targets to track costs and improvements in health outcomes.
The committee, along with members of three technical work groups, have been working together to identify measures for the new Statewide Standard Core Set of Performance Measures.
A final draft list of starter measures was presented to the PMCC last week. These draft measures are now open for public comment.
The committee will finalize the set of measures on December 17, 2014.
Find the recommended measures set on the Healthier Washington website in a document titled Measures Set Final Work Group Recommendations.
After reviewing the recommendations, you can provide feedback through a survey. To be considered, all survey feedback must be received by 5:00 pm on Friday, November 21, 2014.
Thank you for your interest in the development of the Statewide Core Measures Set and for helping make Washington a healthy place to live, work and play!
