HCA launches updated Healthier Washington Measures Dashboard

Last week, the Washington State Health Care Authority unveiled its updated Healthier Washington Measures Dashboard.

The interactive dashboard allows people to explore Washington State population and measures data. It supports Accountable Communities of Health (ACHs), local health jurisdictions, and communities by providing information to assess regional health needs, engage in planning for health improvement, and monitor outcomes over time.

The newest update shows ACH project pay for performance (P4P) metrics under the Medicaid Transformation effort. This includes:

  • Over 20 new measures and sub-measures
  • Updated specifications for existing measures to align with pay for performance requirements
  • A new dashboard tab, Transformation Measures, which displays baseline, improvement targets, and current measure rates for some pay for performance measures, by project area and ACH region
  • New data dimensions, including two types of race/ethnicity breakouts and additional age group filters

View the dashboard by clicking here and choosing “Transformation Measures.”

Information about ACH pay for performance metrics and improvement targets for Medicaid Transformation year 3 (2019) are available on the Medicaid Transformation metrics webpage. Details about how accountability is measured under the Medicaid Transformation effort can be found in the Measurement Guide.
