The commissioner, beginning July 1, 2018, shall give providers the option to have their performance measured using these alternative measures.  The commissioner shall develop and use alternative measures for all provider performance reporting initiatives administered by the commissioner, including but not limited to those initiatives required by this section.

 

(b) Alternative performance measures:

 

(1) must account for nonclinical patient characteristics that are correlated with health disparities and have an impact on provider performance on standardized statewide cost and quality measures;

 

(2) may include new measures appropriate to the patient population served, standardized statewide measures that have been adjusted or modified to account for sociodemographic factors, or a combination of both types of measures; and

 

(3) must include one or more measures of provider initiatives to improve the health of patients and prevent future chronic disease, in addition to measures related to the quality of care.

 

(c) The alternative measures must be developed and used for all:

 

(1) public reporting of provider performance;

 

(2) provider quality measurement and payment rate determinations under fee-for-service, managed care, and county-based purchasing; and
