As an AMP program participant, a variety of resources are available to support you. The Program Manual and Measure Sets are the most commonly used resources, but information is also available on required audits, data file layouts, and the appeals process.
You can also find webinars and newsletter related to the AMP programs on our News and Events page.
Every year, IHA hosts a public comment period to allow stakeholders across the healthcare industry to give feedback on our performance measurement programs, which are guided by IHA multi-stakeholder committees. Your feedback during the 2023 Public Comment Period will help shape our Align. Measure. Perform. (AMP) program for Measurement Year (MY) 2024 and beyond.
All comments are being reviewed by the IHA committees, and responses will be posted on IHA.org on December 15 along with the Final MY 2024 AMP Measure Set.
The AMP Performance Reporting Portal (PRP), powered by Onpoint Health Data, gives you access to clinical quality, patient experience, resource use, and cost results as well as a reporting dashboard, results downloads, and value-based incentive design deliverables. Participating AMP provider organizations (POs) and health plans can access their current results at both the PO- and member-level through the PRP as well as historical PO- and member-level resource use and cost results for Measurement Year 2020.
If you’re new to the AMP program, your organization’s system administrator will need to grant you user access to the PRP after which you will receive a secure message with first-time login information. Please contact email@example.com if you need assistance.
To access PO-level AMP clinical quality and patient experience results from prior to Measurement Year 2021 or to complete tasks related to Participation Confirmation, please use IHA’s AMP Analytics Portal. If you’re new to the AMP program, register to create an AMP Analytics Portal account. Once registered, an existing contact from your organization must add you as an authorized contact using the “Contacts” page. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you need assistance.

A common, industry-approved measure set is the heart of the AMP program. These standard measures help you focus on the most important quality improvement efforts and use resources more efficiently. We align measures across the three AMP programs to lower the reporting burden and facilitate meaningful improvement. Slight differences in the measure sets between AMP programs reflect the needs of each population.
As a participant, you’ll need data submission resources for the current measurement year from our vendors, Onpoint Health Data and FinThrive Healthcare, Inc. (formerly TransUnion), as well as comprehensive information on audit requirements and guidelines.
Health plans that participate in the AMP Commercial HMO and Medi-Cal Managed Care programs get a recommended value-based incentive payment design that they can adapt as needed to reward high-performing providers. Our AMP programs use a shared savings model that focuses on quality, cost, and resource use.
