Performance Measures: 2021 Update on New Value-Based Measures, Program Quality, and Program Certification

Date: November 15, 2021

Presented by: Quinn Pack, MD, MSc, FAACVPR, Wen-chih Wu, MD, MPH, Gerene Bauldoff, RN, PhD, MAACVPR, Mark Stout, MS, CCRP, FAACVPR, Anne Gavic-Ott, MPA, RCEP, MAACVPR

In 2017, the Quality of Care committee of the AACVPR introduced seven performance measures for both cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation to assure uniform and reliable measurements across programs. Between 2018 and 2020, 1407 cardiac and 608 pulmonary programs submitted performance measures data as part of the certification application. In this session, we will review current program performance; discuss its implication for national program quality; introduce four new value-based performance measures; and discuss potential thresholds for performance that may be used in future program certification applications.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Introduce the new value-based quality measures around program enrollment and adherence and discuss the development and rational for these measures.
  2. Review the existing performance measures, the submitted data from the 2018-20 certification cycles, and some potential data quality issues.
  3. Discuss how the existing and new performance will be used in future program certification, including discussing performance thresholds for future certification.
  4. Encourage programs to use performance measures to improve program quality and set goals for improvement. Discuss the potential role of the AACVPR registry in this endeavor.
