The Joint Commission Urges Development of a National Performance Measurement Data Strategy
Date:3/6/2008

ance measurement efforts:

-- Create the framework for a national performance measurement system that meets the needs of all of the various users of, and stakeholders in, performance data by standardizing measure definitions and data collection processes to produce comparable information. A national system for performance measurement data should be assured through sustainable funding from private and public-sector sources.

-- Build a data highway to support the exchange of health information whose interoperability permits data exchange and aggregation when warranted. Information technology systems, such as electronic medical records, must be designed to support performance measurement activities and relieve registered nurses and other clinicians from the burden of manually paging through patient records to obtain needed data.

-- Engage stakeholders and engender trust by addressing concern over the privacy of personal health information. Rules and principles must effectively focus on data use, integrity and reporting. Significant attention also must be paid to educating patients on the options and risks inherent in data sharing, and the value of performance measurement.

"The proposals put forth by the Roundtable aim to break down the barriers to achieving a national strategy," says Eric B. Larson, M.D., M.P.H., Roundtable co-chair and member of The Joint Commission's Board of Commissioners. "With the explosion of performance measurement efforts, the ability to share and merge data has become crucial to developing consistent and true assessments of care."

Today, more than 90 percent of the data on Hospital Compare
