NCQA makes its data available for purchase by health plans, provider organizations and researchers to better understand key metrics in evaluating quality improvement and cost. Learn more about NCQA data products below.
Quality Compass is an indispensable tool used for selecting a health plan, conducting competitor analysis, examining quality improvement and benchmarking plan performance. Provided in this tool is the ability to generate custom reports by selecting plans, measures, and benchmarks (averages and percentiles) for up to three trended years. Results in table and graph formats offer simple comparison of plans’ performance against competitors or benchmarks.
PCMH Benchmark File
For the first time, NCQA is releasing benchmarking data on its PCMH applications. These data are now available for researchers looking to utilize statistical data points to gain industry insights or key quality improvement areas to facilitate data-driven decision making.
The PCMH Benchmark file is founded on two decades of experience researching and measuring health care quality. Data are obtained through the 2011 NCQA PCMH Recognition program, the most widely used PCMH evaluation program in the United States. The file aggregates a broad number of data points gathered from NCQA-Recognized practice submissions and lets you see pass rates on standard, element and factor scores.
The PCMH Benchmark file allows data segmentation along several parameters:
- Organization Benchmark (HHS, National, State).
- Specialty (All, Family Practice Only, Internal Medicine Only, Pediatrics Only).
- PCMH Level (Overall, Level 1 or 2, Level 3).
- Practice Ownership (FQHC/CHC, Hospital/Health System/Health Plan, Military, Other Practice Association, Physician-Owned [<5 Providers, >=5 Providers]).
