Recently, KHC announced the creation of a public-private partnership to create a common measures set in Kentucky, the Kentucky Performance Measures Alignment Committee (PMAC), led by KHC and KY Department for Medicaid Services. The 12-month initiative will produce a common set of measures related to five key areas of healthcare focus, with the ultimate expectation that the measure set be adopted by public and private organizations to better focus improvement efforts toward shared areas.
To support that effort, we are now taking applications to participate on the PMAC committee, which will be chosen jointly by KHC and KDMS. Kentucky PMAC will oversee the measurement alignment work and determine the final core measurement set. We are looking for individuals and organizations with a passion for quality healthcare measurement from various types of stakeholders, including plans, providers, purchasers, consumers, academia, and government.
Committee members will attend an estimated six meetings in-person or virtually from November 2017 to July 2018. For more information about the project, an invitation to apply for a subcommittee, list of roles and responsibilities of committee members, and an application, click here.
Submissions will be due by Wednesday, October 25. Any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
