QPP Quality Measures Crosswalk for 2019
The QPP Quality Measures Crosswalk was developed to assist providers with their practice transformation efforts. This tool is a crosswalk of measures and improvement activities shared across the Washington State Medicaid Transformation Project Demonstration, the Health Care Authority (HCA) Apple Health Contract Metrics, and the Medicare Quality Payment Program (QPP). It reflects the measures currently approved for 2019 for the HCA Apple Health contracts and Medicare Quality Payment Program, and will be updated with new measures each year.
This is not intended to be an exhaustive list; some Medicaid Transformation Project measures are not included as they are a hybrid of national and state-specific metrics. When choosing your Improvement Activities and Quality Measures for the QPP Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS), consider national initiatives such as Million Hearts and Medication Safety and Adverse Drug Event Prevention.
Consider also Washington State’s strategy to reduce morbidity and mortality associated with opioids -- the Washington
State Interagency Opioid Working Plan. Many of these initiatives have associated quality measures and improvement activities that can be tracked and reported as part of your MIPS data submission and your state contracts and demonstration projects.
