Advocacy Alert - AHCA Quality Measures Form

As you know House Bill 843 was signed into law and the effective date was July 1, 2019.   

The law requires AHCA to create a "form" with data that must be provided (by each hospital) to patients or a patient's representative. 

During a meeting yesterday of the State Consumer Health Information and Policy Advisory Council, representatives from AHCA reported that in order to develop the "form" they will first need to initiate a formal rule making process.  We expect that process to be initiated in the near future as AHCA works to develop an explanation of the quality measures and the relationship between patient safety and the hospital's data for the quality measures as required in the law.

Many of you have contacted me with concerns about the “form” mentioned above as well as the development of the “explanation” required in the bill.  Please note that I have been in contact with the leadership of AHCA and I will be working with our Advocacy Committee to provide input on both the “form” and the “explanation” of the relationship between patient safety and quality measures. Please be sure to follow future Advocacy Alert Messages for an update on the timeline and the specifics of the form development and implementation.
