Quality indicators in health care use administrative data to help determine whether the right services are being delivered at the right time to the right people. They serve as numerical measures that can be used to track change over time or identify practices that might benefit from clinical review. High or low quality indicators in and of themselves do not mean that care is being delivered inappropriately. For example, care patterns may vary based on setting and/or population served.
OMH continues to define and develop indicators that promote high-quality and efficient care with input from consumers, families, providers, and government agencies.
Current quality indicators in PSYCKES include:
- HARP-Enrolled, Not Health Home Enrolled: Medicaid-eligible adults 21 and over who are enrolled in a Managed Care Health and Recovery Plan (HARP) but are not enrolled in a Health Home.
- Quality Assurance Reporting Requirements (QARR) Improvement Measure
- Hospital Readmission
- High Utilization
- Preventable Hospitalization
- Health Promotion and Coordination
- Behavioral Health Care Coordination
- General Medical Health
- Treatment Engagement
