AMGA’s Board of Directors has endorsed a set of value measures designed to simplify the reporting process and limit the burden on providers and group practices, while still reporting clinically relevant and actionable data. The 14 measures were selected to address the flaws with the current quality measurement and reporting system, which suffers from duplicative measures and a lack of data standardization. AMGA members report hundreds of different quality measures to various public and private payers, the vast majority of which are not useful in evaluating or improving the quality of care provided. There is a significant cost to measure reporting. Research has indicated that, on average, U.S. physician practices across four common specialties annually spend more than $15.4 billion and 785 hours per physician to report quality measures.
