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.
We bring the industry together to update the measure set each year to reflect what’s most important to plans, providers, and purchasers. Because as you improve care delivery, we can set new targets for improvement. The AMP Technical Measurement Committee develops initial measure set recommendations. The proposed measures are then open for stakeholder feedback during an annual public comment period, followed by AMP Program Governance Committee approval before becoming final.
The 2016 – 2021 AMP Measure Set Strategy is a guide to ensure AMP’s evolving measure sets work for everyone — provider organizations, plans, purchasers, and consumers. Cross-industry leaders developed the Measure Set Strategy in collaboration with the AMP committees.
