Super Set of Quality Measures: Part of Meaningful Use Incentive Program

ADA participated in a recent meeting of the Office of the National Coordinator Health IT Policy Committee, where discussions focused on a "Super Set" of Quality Measures, a focal point of the HITECH "Meaningful Use" Incentive Program.

More information on the meeting.

There are three stages of the program, each with regulations and measures eligible providers must report on to receive their financial incentives. This Super Set of measures identifies existing measures which will be considered for Stage 2 (2013) or Stage 3 (2015).

ONC also announced that contracts soon will be awarded to measure developers whose charge it is to identify and develop a sound group of quality measures over the next few years, which will be the foundation for patient outcomes measurement via HITECH. Such development is critical to nutrition care, as the quality measures will be electronic (for use in electronic health records) and will be tied to reimbursement and clinical coding.

ADA also is participating in ONC's Standards and Interoperability Framework to assure nutrition is included in pertinent areas within health information technology.
