PCPI Stewarded Measures
Share |

In an effort to ensure PCPI’s continued leadership in the development of next generation measures and to more effectively support PCPI members in their measure development and maintenance efforts, PCPI restructured its measure development model in 2013, adopting a more de-centralized model for measure maintenance and providing PCPI members with the opportunity to directly manage the currency of performance measures relevant to their constituents.

As a result of these efforts, medical specialty societies have assumed responsibility for the ongoing maintenance of a large portion of measures in existing PCPI developed measure sets. View the list of PCPI-developed measures that are now stewarded and maintained externally by our partners in measure development here.

Before accessing or downloading any measures, please reference the Permission to Use Measures page, which includes Restrictions on Development of Derivative Works of PCPI Measures, as well as access to PCPI's Commercial Distribution License Application.
