Quality Assurance & Reporting Requirements

QHI ACO maintains a comprehensive physician-directed and beneficiary-centered Quality Assurance and Improvement Program that includes performance standards for: (1) quality of care, (2) patient experiences and (3) cost-effectiveness. 

QHI ACO emphasizes adherence to evidence-based clinical guidelines and care delivery processes that focus on the needs of individual beneficiaries while maintaining a perspective on the broader population the ACO serves.  The QHI ACO Medical Director reports all findings to the board which directs the Quality Assurance and Improvement Program.

QHI ACO utilizes and follows all NCQA standards and guidelines, and all MSSP quality-related recommendations/regulations. QHI ACO and all preferred vendors maintain appropriate protection of health information, including the removal of member names, when providing benchmark, historical, and comparative data for ongoing quality improvement.
