Recently, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) and America's Health Insurance Plans (AHIP), as part of a broad collaborative of health care system participants, The Core Quality Measure Collaborative, released seven sets of core clinical quality measures that support payor alignment. This is a current example of the industry collaborating to build alignment and a "culture of quality."
Critically review the core measures and share your thoughts and professional insights on the measure set. Are they the right measures?
Are there other measures that should have been considered? What's missing (if anything)? Are the results surprising? Incorporate new knowledge gained from readings.

Creating and Implementing Strategies
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has been working to support quality measures in various public programs as it attempts to promote consistent high care of patients and decrease the burden and complexity of clinicians (US Department of Health and Human Services, 2012). The recently announced seven sets of core value for hospital quality control will be useful in multi-payer systems. The design and implementation of these rule ensure that confusion and complexity faced by healthcare providers reduce. One of the most important factors in the implementation of a payor alignment system is the guiding principle used to implement the core values (Conway, Mostashari & Clancy,2013).
