QCC Sets and Reviews Goals Scorecard

The Massachuetts Quality and Cost Council (QCC)  has begin to track progress against six goals established by the Council pursuant to their charge as established in Chapter 58 of the Acts of 2006.  The Goals Scorecard includes measures around improving the screening for and management of chronic illness in the community and developing new measures to track progress in adhering to patients’ wishes at end of life.  The latter will include tracking – as recommended by the state’s Expert Panel on End of Life care – the percentage of hospitals,  SNFs and home health agencies with palliative care programs.  The Advisory Committee to the QCC will seek input on these goals, and the associated measures,  at their May meeting.  What is your feedback?
