Metric Alignment

Metric Alignment of Existing Quality Measures

The metric alignment identifies the quality programs and associated metrics the Transitions of Care Standards (TOC) are likely to impact from across a variety of healthcare settings. The purpose of this resource is to list key metrics, aligned to the evaluation measures and specific quality programs in place as of June 2018. While comprehensive, it does not cover all the setting-specific quality and outcomes measures that an organization may track.

The metrics identified here are aligned to each of the TOC standards and can support a common approach to data collection and benchmarking to measure related quality improvements. Additionally, a set of “consensus measures” is presented for each standard, representing those evaluation metrics with the broadest applicability across settings of care. Consensus measures have been reviewed and endorsed by the ACMA Transitions of Care Executive Steering committee comprised of subject matter experts with a broad range of experience.

You can’t manage what you don’t measure.
