Medicaid Transformation metrics

Under the Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) program, Washington State, Accountable Communities of Health, and Medicaid managed care organizations are all accountable for demonstrating improvement toward and attainment of transformation targets. Earning the maximum funding available requires that performance expectations, including reporting activities, are met.

    DSRIP quality and outcome metrics

    Metrics listed in the state's Medicaid Transformation protocols were approved by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). These metrics use standard national and/or state specifications. Each technical specification sheet notes the utility of each metric within the DSRIP program.
