Quality measures are developed to include the accompanying technical specifications, which are the instructions for building and calculating a measure. The AAO-HNSF quality measures are categorized as proportion measures where performance is derived by dividing the number of cases that meet a criterion for quality (the numerator) by the number of eligible cases within a given time frame (the denominator). Watch the video below to learn more about the anatomy of otolaryngology clinical quality measures.
Quality measures are used to monitor patient care, connect clinical outcomes with healthcare processes, and meet third-party payer requirements. AAO-HNSF is committed to providing quality measures that meet our members’ requirements for public reporting to both the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and private payers, and to track patient care over time.
