IHA conducts a call for public comment prior to finalizing measures, specifications, and program or policy changes. AMP program participants and stakeholders from across the healthcare industry participate in public comment to provide input on the future of performance measurement and reporting at IHA.
All comments received during public comment will be reviewed by the IHA Technical Measurement Committee or Technical Payment Committee, and responses, including applicable changes, will be approved by the IHA Governance Committee before being incorporated where appropriate into final Measure Sets and Manuals.
IHA has aligned with recent changes to the annual timeline for HEDIS© specification releases. During the IHA 2020 Public Comment period, AMP program participants and stakeholders are invited to provide feedback on a Draft Manual and Measure Sets for both MY 2020 and MY 2021. Feedback received during this period will be reviewed and incorporated as appropriate into the final MY 2020 AMP Program Manual to be published on December 1st, 2020, and the final MY 2021 AMP Program Manual to be published on June 1st, 2021.
For more information on this timeline change and other AMP program updates, as well as instructions on how to submit public comment, please see this year’s Call for Public Comment document.
