The CNY BHCC’s (now Omnes IPA) Data and Quality Sub-committees have been working to identify an initial measure set in an effort to create a unified process for data collection and quality across the region. The committees looked at various data sets that are already being tracked by several partners and determined an initial set of measures. The following measures were selected:
These initial measures are based on claims data. The CNY BHCC/Omnes IPA purchased a PSYCKES view tailored for networks across New York State. This system will allow us to aggregate our data as well as identify specific high needs individuals that may require further assistance in meeting their healthcare goals. This information will assist us in creating a baseline and forming our quality improvement efforts as a region.
