Slide 10. Scope for Core Measurement Set

  1. Must be realistic about staffing/funding needs for pulling/analyzing/reporting available data.
  2. Comprehensive effort to find good measures for all service categories, duration of enrollment, and other aspects of care required by the legislation; however, if no good measures currently exist for a given aspect of care, a measure will not be recommended for the core set.
  3. Include measures not currently used by Medicaid/CHIP:
    • e.g. State and national measurement efforts.
  4. Choose measures that are actionable:
    • There should be clear steps a State can take to improve on performance—the measure should inform what these steps need to be.
