Last month the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) announced an agreement to adopt a common set of physician quality metrics. This Consensus Set, identified by the healthcare systems participating in the federal Core Quality Measures Collaborative, overlaps (by design) with several other measurement sets in current use. Providers should take comfort from the fact that they are already collecting most of these measures, though there are modifications to several. However, they should also take heed that while there is substantial overlap between the Consensus Set and existing STARS and QRS measure sets, the next few years will still be a time of flux for physicians as additional Consensus measures are developed and STARS and QRS migrate toward these. The infographic below, researched by Oliver Wyman's Health & Life Sciences Provider team, shows the degree of overlap between the proposed and current measure sets:
