Committee on Quality and Performance Measurement

The Committee on Quality and Performance Measurement is a reporting component of the Council on Quality Care that includes members with expertise in health systems, services, and quality measurement. This committee serves as a resource for the Council on Quality Care and the staff in the APA Quality Office for various quality policy initiatives and regulations.

The committee is charged with:

  • Establishing a strategy for quality and performance measurement relevant to evolving federal, state and private value-based care delivery and reimbursement policies
  • Conceptualizing a strategy for development of meaningful quality measures for psychiatry
  • Prioritizing the development and adoption of such quality measures through analyses of gaps in current measures and emphasizing use of outcome measures, rather than process measures, alone, to improve the quality of psychiatric care
  • Reviewing the validity of endorsed and/or widely used quality measures related to psychiatric care
  • Collaborating with the APA registry to support quality measurement reporting; 6. Developing a strategy for collaboration with external quality measurement entities, (e.g., CMS and the National Quality Forum) and stakeholders (e.g., other specialty societies) to further development of quality measures related to psychiatric care
  • Serving as the oversight and consultative group to APA-led Quality Measure Development Workgroups; 8. Developing a plan for long-term sustainability of various quality measurement development efforts within the APA.
