Guiding Principles
• Measures must be:
Evidence based
Consistent with national measures where possible
• Methodology for earning incentives:
 Recognize some measures may not be appropriate to
specialty, pediatric, psychiatric, or rehabilitation hospitals
 Represent real improvement in quality
 Designed so hospitals can earn incentive payments if
performance is at or above the benchmark
 Consistent with areas Washington hospitals are working on
Washington State Hospital Association
Process for Selecting Measures
Clinical experts from hospitals provided
guidance for measure development
Improvement and sustaining measures
Moving safety and quality forward while sustaining gains of
first incentive program while also
Final selection by HCA in collaboration with
WSHA, clinical experts, and payors
Washington State Hospital Association
Payment Increases
• One percent inpatient Medicaid increase for
non-critical access hospitals
• Acute general and pediatric hospitals
Receive increase across services based on overall
hospital performance
• Behavioral health hospitals and units
Increase based on behavioral health measures
Washington State Hospital Association
Funding for Incentives
• The money comes from savings to the
program as match rates improve with federal
ACA enrollment.
• Will only be paid if there are sufficient funds
to pay for it — we expect there will be.
Washington State Hospital Association
Funding for Incentives

Washington State Hospital Association
Incentive Methodology
• Current results used to set improvement goals
 For sustaining measures, hospital data were arrayed in
quartiles based on prior performance
• Points awarded for each quartile
 For each measure, hospitals can earn 10, 5, 3, or 0 points
 Points averaged across all applicable measures
• Hospitals receiving an average score of 5 or above
receive the increase
Washington State Hospital Association
Methodology Example
The quartiles were then reviewed for:
• Patient Safety
• Appropriateness
