Methodological Considerations in Generating Provider Performance Score

Figure 4 is a fFlowchart of measure selection process:

  • Early stage: under ideal conditions, which measures would the CVE like to report?
    That leads to six measures, numbered 1 through 6.
  • Middle stage: for which measures are the data necessary for measure construction available to the CVE?
    Measures are narrowed down to 1, 2, 4, and 6.
  • Late stage: for which measures is the amount of performance misclassification due to chance acceptable to CVE stakeholders?
    Measures are narrowed down to 2 and 6, which are included in a public report.
