Task Force meeting dates, agendas, and additional materials


The measures will be organized according to the quadruple aim and will utilize standardized measurement data, be readily definable and outcomes based, and leverage existing federal and state measures where practical. The Task Force will build on the previous work performed by the NC Division of Medical Assistance (DMA), NC Division of MH/DD/SAS, and others to define and prioritize the measures. It is anticipated that the measures will evolve based on experience and published evidence and will need to be reviewed and updated on a regular basis.

The Task Force will consider measures across a broad continuum of care including but not limited to public health, mental health/IDD, pediatrics, whole person health (integration of mental and physical), pediatrics, oral health, infants, rural needs, key high cost high risk subpopulations, mothers and children, the chronically ill and people with disabilities, foster children, and areas of health disparities. Using the quadruple aim as a framework, the Task Force will identify the services applicable to each aim and identify, define and prioritize a set of recommended measures across the service areas.
