Performance measures

 The development of a statewide common set of measures provides the foundation for health care accountability and measuring performance.

What is the Statewide Common Measure Set?

The Statewide Common Measure Set provides the foundation for health care accountability and measuring performance. The development and ongoing evolution and implementation of a set of measures is not only mandated from ESHB 2572, but necessary to ensuring our ability to measure progress towards achieving healthier outcomes for all residents in Washington.

Who developed the Statewide Common Measure Set?

The Performance Measures Coordinating Committee (PMCC), with the support of ad hoc technical work groups, approved a "starter set" of measures in December 2014 that are intended to evolve over time as the science of measurement and state priorities evolve. The committee will continue to meet to consider recommendations for evolving the measure set.

When is the next PMCC meeting?

The next  meeting will be held in October 2020. Stay tuned for more information!

How can I buy high-value care?

Whether purchasing health care for a family or a group of employees, we must weigh cost and quality to determine value.
