About:

PRIME includes over a dozen innovative metrics that assess project objectives while progressing the national performance measurement landscape. As part of the planned PRIME Innovative Metric Testing and Revision process, DHCS, SNI and DHLF are providing PRIME entities multiple opportunities for feedback on iterative drafts culminating in a final draft for the DY15 Manual.

In addition to your feedback via Surveymonkey, stewards will make revisions based on analysis of the DY13 Year End data, NCQA’s recommended modifications, and PCS inquiries from PRIME Entities.

PLEASE NOTE: For DY14 Mid-Year reporting in March, you must use the DY14 Manual released January 11, 2019.  Do NOT use Innovative Metric Revision #1 or #2 Drafts for DY14 Mid-Year Reporting.
