The hurdles for effective (full) implementation appear to be roughly common from country to country, and site to site.
This paper summarizes the lessons learned from multiple companies/sites around the world.
This will be illustrated based on the recent e MOC system rollout at Irving Oil, New Brunswick, Canada.
Even without regulatory considerations, there are good reasons for virtually every coal-fired power plant to improve its heat rate.
PIP validation is a mandatory EQR activity and determines whether a MCO’s /HMO’sperformance improvement project is designed, conducted, and reported in a methodologically sound manner.
To evaluate the standard elements of a PIP, the Meta Star team used the methodology described in CMS EQR Protocol 3, Meta Star reviews and provides a written evaluation report to both DHS and the MCO/HMO for each PIP submitted under the contract period.
During the contract year, at the direction of or in collaboration with DHS, Meta Star may also review projects for pre-approval and provide technical assistance to MCOs/HMOs conducting PIPs.
This helps ensure MCOs have the capacity to gather and report data accurately, so that staff and management are able to rely on data when assessing program performance or making decisions related to improving members’ health, safety, and quality of care.
Project Management is an important aspect of our overall Quality System.
Meta Star validates managed care organization (MCO) and health maintenance organization (HMO) performance measures that have been reported by the MCOs/HMOs during the preceding 12 months.
I did some performance diagnostic in swagger-tools, and I found that, for a request, the most time spending module in the API infrastructure is the validator middleware.
By looking into the call stack, most of the time is spending in helpers.js#L59.
