Step 5. Construct Quality Measures and Analytic Variables


IMPORTED: www_commonwealthfund_org__usr_img_block50x59.gif

Step 5 provides detailed technical assistance on how to analyze the PHDS data and create quality measure scores. This section is intended primarily for data analysts. This section is also valuable for project managers to determine scoring models for the PHDS quality measures that best meet the project needs and goals.

The seven sections in this step focus on the construction of the PHDS quality measures and evaluating these measures in different ways (e.g., for specific units of analysis, by subgroups of children, by administrative and utilization data):

5.1: Calculate core PHDS quality measures specific to certain aspects of care

5.2: Calculate PHDS "got all care" composite measure

5.3: Calculate alternate versions of the PHDS quality measures

5.4: Construct additional PHDS analytic variables

5.5: Evaluate quality measurement results for specific units of analysis

5.6: Evaluate quality measurement results for subgroups of children

5.7: Review additional analytic tips

Useful tables/figures in this step include:
