RAND Health, a division of the not-for-profit RAND Corp., has released a report analyzing proposed models of payment reform and the current state of performance measurement. The nearly 300-page report was commissioned by the National Quality Forum. “The goal of the project was to describe the performance measurement needs created by current and emerging payment reform approaches, to assess the suitability of existing performance measures to support these needs and to suggest near-term priority areas for performance measure development that would support these needs effectively going forward,” the authors wrote in the report.
