Quality Performance Results

2020 Quality Performance Results:

ACO# Measure Name Rate ACO Mean
ACO-43 Ambulatory Sensitive Condition Acute Composite (AHRQ* Prevention Quality Indicator (PQI #91)) 0.58 0.95
ACO-13 Falls: Screening for Future Fall Risk 78.57 84.97
ACO-14 Preventive Care and Screening: Influenza Immunization 89.69 76.03
ACO-17 Preventive Care and Screening: Tobacco Use: Screening and Cessation Intervention 58.33 81.67
ACO-18 Preventive Care and Screening: Screening for Depression and Follow-up Plan 81.00 71.46
ACO-19 Colorectal Cancer Screening 74.23 72.59
ACO-20 Breast Cancer Screening 65.19 83.37
ACO-42 Statin Therapy for the Prevention and Treatment of Cardiovascular Disease 87.11 83.37
ACO-27 Diabetes: Hemoglobin A1c Poor Control (>9%) 12.61 14.70
ACO-28 Controlling High Blood Pressure 83.36 72.87

Please note, the ACO-40 Depression Remission at 12 months quality measure is not included in public reporting due to low sample size. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) also waived the requirement for ACOs to field a CAHPS for ACOs survey for PY 2020 through the Physician Fee Schedule Final Rule for Calendar Year 2021. Additionally, CMS reverted ACO-8 Risk-Standardized, All Condition Readmission and ACO-38 Risk-Standardized Acute Admission Rates for Patients with Multiple Chronic Conditions to pay-for-reporting, given the impact of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) public health emergency (PHE) on these measures.
