The AMA-convened Physician Consortium for Performance Improvement® (PCPI®) is launching a public comment period for the following performance measures:
Draft Asthma Measurement Set
The PCPI and the National Committee for Quality Assurance convened the Asthma Work Group (Work Group) to assess opportunities for the development of evidence-based performance measures. The Work Group proposes this set of measures to address gaps in care of the asthma patient with the aim of optimizing clinical outcomes.
The asthma set includes measures that focus on the assessment of asthma risk and control, pharmacologic therapy for persistent asthma, treatment planning and on tobacco screening and intervention.
The 30-day comment period begins on Tuesday, March 18, 2014 and will close at 5 p.m. Central on April 16, 2014. All comments are welcome and will be compiled and shared with the work group for consideration.
