Two of the nation's top accrediting bodies and the AMA are cooperating on a plan to coordinate performance measurements. The hope is that the effort will reduce overlap and the expense of data collection and reporting.

The AMA, National Committee for Quality Assurance and Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations have established the Performance Measurement Coordinating Council. PMCC will identify measures commonly used to assess providers, facilities and health plans alike. Such measures are likely to include customer satisfaction and rates of immunizations, mammography screenings and utilization for certain procedures.

PMCC says universal measures and standardized performance criteria will save money and time for all involved.
