A component of the CMS PGP Demonstration Project is the collection and measurement of 32 quality measures, based on evidence-based best practices for chronic disease and preventative care.
Using a module implementation structure, sections of the quality measures were assessed each of the three years of the project, continually adding until all 32 measures were collected during the final year.
- Year 1: April 2005-March 2006
- Year 2: April 2006-March 2007
- Year 3: April 2007-March 2008
