Development of Quality Performance Measures for Women's Health


This project will complete development of a set of measures to assess the performance of health plans in counseling women on options for the management of menopausal hormonal changes and the treatment of osteoporosis in postmenopausal women who suffer fractures. Both measures have received the support of the National Committee for Quality Assurance's (NCQA) Women's Health Measurement Advisory Panel (MAP). Upon completion, their inclusion in NCQA's Health Plan Employer Data and Information Set (HEDIS) could lead not only to significant improvements in health plan management of menopause and osteoporosis but could also enhance plans' focus on other areas of women's health.
