Measurement Systems Toolkit

Each year the Health Alliance of Northern California (HANC) works in collaboration with its health center members to develop datasets on clinical, operational, patient experience, and financial performance measures. These measures are part of the Uniform Data System (UDS) reporting process required of federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) or are part of reporting requirements related to participation in Medi-Cal managed care, such as: Healthcare Effectiveness and Data Information System (HEDIS), Quality Incentive Program (QIP), and Facility Site Review (FSR).

HANC partners with The North Coast Clinics Network (NCCN) and Partnership HealthPlan of California (PHC) to develop and regularly update a robust toolkit entitled “Health Center Quality Measurement Systems: a guide to clinical performance measurement sets.” The toolkit includes introductory information on each of these measure sets, datasets with regional performance on select measures, and a measurement system crosswalk to compare and contrast similar measures across distinct measure sets.

The goal of this toolkit is to aide Quality Improvement (QI) staff and all those concerned in the navigation of the complexities of common clinical measurement sets and further the understanding of their requirements within the context of regional clinical performance data.
