The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) awarded seven organizations new cooperative agreements to partner with the agency in developing, improving, updating, or expanding quality measures for Medicare’s Quality Payment Program (QPP). These cooperative agreements, authorized under the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA), represent the first funding initiative supporting public-private efforts to develop measures for the Quality Payment Program. Through these partnerships, CMS will work closely with external organizations—such as clinical professional organizations and specialty societies, patient advocacy groups, educational institutions, independent research institutions, and health systems—to develop and implement measures that offer the most promise for improving patient care.
