Quality Measure Development and Assessment for Ambulatory Surgery Centers

KNG Health provides statistical support to The Ambulatory Surgery Center Quality Collaboration (ASC QC) to evaluate quality measures proposed for inclusion in CMS’ ASC Quality Reporting Program.  KNG Health has conducted statistical evaluation of select measures in terms of reliability, validity, feasibility, and interpretability based on data collected through pilot testing.  As part of its quality measure work for ASC QC, KNG Health has also developed a data collection tool for measure reliability testing, which included automation and consistency checks to minimize data entry error.  In addition, KNG Health has analyzed data from Culture of Patient Safety Survey data from ambulatory surgery centers and developed both facility-level and organizational-level reports that use data visualization tools to illustrate analysis results.
