Highmark has announced that it will be introducing quality metrics to the Highmark Specialist Efficiency Report (SER), its program aimed at analyzing and comparing costs among providers in the same specialty and region.
The quality metrics will complement the established Cost Efficiency score. Highmark says that it aims to provide greater insights to help practices monitor quality as well as care cost.
Highmark is in the process of emailing affected practices with FAQs and information on the quality metrics. Read Highmark's letter here and view the FAQs on the quality assessment here.
