Quality Measure Review

The Quality Committee built over 35 measures (see our measures page for specs) that are available on our quality improvement dashboards and on the monthly provider specific e-mails. To ensure MPOG quality measures remain current and relevant to anesthesia best practices, we have established a measure review schedule to assess existing measures every three years. Two quality committee members from different institutions are assigned to each measure. Our goal is to leverage the vast experience of quality champions and gain expert consensus among the MPOG quality committee for measure modifications based on review of recent literature. Reviewers will make one of the following recommendations (with supporting evidence) and present their decision at a quality committee meeting:

    • Continue measure as is
    • Modify measure
    • Retire measure

Considerations:

    • Reviewers will be de facto members of MPOG Quality Improvement Measure Workgroup
    • Coordinating Center will not assign more than 2 measures per Quality Champion
    • Coordinating Center team will assist reviewers as necessary to complete review process
