Washington Statewide Common Measure Set

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

What is the Washington Statewide Common Measure Set?

It 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 House Bill 2572 (2013-14), but necessary to ensuring our ability to measure progress toward achieving healthier outcomes for all residents in Washington.

Who developed it?

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?

Friday, August 13
1-3 p.m.
The meeting will be held virtually
