NCQA Comments on ONC Health IT Strategic Plan

NCQA’s Public Policy department works closely with state and federal officials, helping them assess the quality of the care they pay for and regulate, and identifying opportunities for improvement.

State and federal agencies utilize NCQA programs, such as Health Plan Accreditation (HPA), HEDIS performance measures and Patient-Centered Medical Home Recognition (PCMH) as tools for fulfilling their oversight responsibilities.

NCQA shares quality data and technical expertise with a variety of stakeholders across the health care spectrum. We also partner with consumers, employers and other groups to support policies that will improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the health care system. 

On March 4, 2020, NCQA submitted public comments to Donald Rucker, MD, National Coordinator for Health IT, showing support for ONC's Health IT Strategic Plan that will foster the interoperability and data governance needed for moving to digital quality measures (dQM).
