Meaningful Measures Initiative Identifies High Priority Areas for Quality Measurement and Improvement


The Meaningful Measures initiative helps CMS find the highest quality measurement and improvement priorities that are most important to improve patient outcomes.
Based on stakeholder feedback on the growing number of quality measures and the burden of quality measure reporting, CMS incorporated diverse stakeholder feedback to develop the Meaningful Measures initiative to focus on core quality priorities that are most vital to providing high-quality care and improving patient outcomes. 

The Meaningful Measures framework will let CMS use measure sets that are most prudent, least burdensome, well understood by external stakeholders, helpful in guiding quality measurement efforts, aligned to reduce clinician and provider burden, and focused on interoperability and patient care.
