TI Year 4, 5 & 6 Milestone Performance Measures
TI Program Year 4, 5, & 6 milestone incentive payments are based on performance measures in contrast to the Core Components used in Years 2 and 3.
Participants will receive incentive payments based on their performance on the measures as calculated via claims with dates of service in each program year:
- Year 4: October 1, 2019 through September 30, 2020
- Year 5: October 1, 2020 through September 30, 2021
- Year 6: October 1, 2021 through September 30, 2022
TI participants' Year 5 milestone performance measure outcomes will be finalized in Summer of 2022.
As can be seen from the noted measure sets, the metrics align with various other applications and uses, including the CMS Core Set and Statewide Targeted Investments measures.
The measures' calculation and target methodology can be found at TIPQIC.org. AHCCCS provides ongoing engagement and support to TI participants’ efforts to meet the performance measure milestones, including peer learning, technical support, intermittent feedback on measure performance, and guidance on performance improvement through the end of the program.
Year 4, 5 & 6 Milestone Performance Measures
Participation in the QIC is a Year 4, 5 and 6 Milestone. To meet the milestone, the organization participating in the program (TIN level) must be represented and attend the kickoff meeting and most virtual sessions. If you are unsure if you need to attend, please notify the TI Team at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please see list here for the number of representatives who must attend from your organization.
The organization’s administrative and clinical QIC representatives (excepting one site participants as noted above) or their designees must attend four of the Year 6 Quality Improvement Collaborative virtual group meetings offered for the Area of Concentration.
Alternatively, organizations may complete the milestone by attending three QIC virtual meetings AND two Quality Improvement Workgroups.
Y5 CORE COMPONENTS & IPAT SCORE: Participants will need to attest to Core Components 1 and 2 in addition to entering the IPAT scores. IPAT score documentation does not need to be uploaded into the TI Attestation Portal, but it is advised that the record TI-related documentation be retained in case it is pulled for a random post-pay audit. IPAT Assessment Tool can be accessed here.
