CMS Releases 2019 Measure Development Plan Annual Report

On May 31, 2019, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) posted the 2019 Quality Measure Development Plan (MDP) Annual Report, which describes progress in developing clinician quality measures to support the Quality Payment Program (QPP). The CMS Quality Measure Development Plan is a focused framework for developing these measures, pointing out the known measurement and performance gaps, and recommending prioritized approaches to close those gaps.

The strategic approach to measure development outlined in the MDP and additional highlights in the MDP annual reports provide information and support to key stakeholders who develop clinician quality measures for consideration for the QPP. More information about the 2019 MDP Annual Report is available on the QPP measure development page.
