Health Home Quality Reporting

Health Home Quality Measure Reporting and Evaluation Activities

A goal of Medicaid health home programs is to improve health outcomes for beneficiaries with chronic conditions through coordinated care provided by an interdisciplinary team linking primary, behavioral health, and long term services and supports. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) established a core set of health home quality measures that states can report through the Quality Measure Reporting (QMR) system according to the schedule below. These quality and utilization measures will be used for ongoing monitoring and evaluation purposes across all state health home programs.

  • For technical assistance related to calculating, reporting, or using the health home quality measures, submit your questions to the TA Mailbox at MACQualityTA@cms.hhs.gov
  • For assistance with using QMR, contact the QMR Helpdesk at MDCT_Helpdesk@cms.hhs.gov.
