PCPI® and PCPI-Approved Quality Measures
Physician Consortium for Performance Improvement® (PCPI®) measures (encompassing structure, process and outcome) have set the bar for evaluating quality of care for a wide range of clinical topics.
The current performance measures portfolio includes:
- Measurement sets in 47 clinical areas and preventive care
- More than 300 individual measures
- Clinically relevant means for tracking variations in care
New PCPI measures available
- Percutaneous Coronary Intervention
- Optimizing Patient Exposure to Ionizing Radiation
PCPI-approved measures (developed through the independent measure development process)
Supporting Quality and Performance Improvement Beginning to End
PCPI measures are subject to an ongoing process of testing, refinement and maintenance. The PCPI also augments its measures with supporting materials, which include examples of innovative approaches that drive improvement at the point of care and other initiatives that allow clinicians to participate in quality reporting.
Commitment and Partnership
The AMA-convened PCPI is committed to playing a leadership role in the national effort to improve health care. We're committed to supporting physicians and other health care professionals as they navigate a changing health care environment.
In addition to a full portfolio of measures, you'll find worksheets designed to take the mystery out of participating in the Physician Quality Reporting System.
