As an AMP program participant, a variety of resources are available to support you. The Program Manual and Measure Sets are the most commonly used resources, but information is also available on required audits, data file layouts, and the appeals process.
You can also find presentations and publications related to the AMP programs on our News and Events page.
The AMP Reporting Portal gives you access to your quality, resource use, and total cost of care results as well as statewide benchmarks. If you’re a new AMP program participant, register to create an account. Once registered, an existing contact from your organization must add you as an authorized contact for your organization using the “Contacts” page, which grants access to your organization’s results.
Starting in MY 2021, the AMP Program Manual is released as two documents: the AMP Technical Specifications and AMP Program Guide. The AMP Technical Specifications includes guidelines for reporting measures and specifications for all measures used in the AMP Programs. The AMP Program Guide provides an overview of the AMP Programs and timelines for data submission and reporting. Find the latest documents below.
*On December 15, 2021, we will release the final MY 2021 AMP Program Guide.
A common, industry-approved measure set is the heart of the AMP program. These standard measures help you focus on the most important quality improvement efforts and use resources more efficiently. We align measures across the four AMP programs to lower the reporting burden and facilitate meaningful improvement. Slight differences in the measure sets between AMP programs reflect the needs of each population.
As a participant, you’ll need data submission resources for the current measurement year from our vendors, Onpoint Health Data and TransUnion, as well as comprehensive information on audit requirements and guidelines.
Health plans that participate in the AMP Commercial HMO and Medi-Cal Managed Care programs get a recommended value-based incentive payment design that they can adapt as needed to reward high-performing providers. Our AMP programs use a shared savings model that focuses on quality, cost, and resource use.
Every year, IHA conducts a public comment period before finalizing measures, specifications, and program or policy changes for the AMP program. Through this opportunity, AMP program participants and stakeholders from across the healthcare industry provide input on the future of performance measurement and reporting at IHA. Our 2021 Public Comment Period was open from October 11-29, 2021.
Each comment received during public comment is reviewed by either the IHA Technical Measurement Committee or Technical Payment Committee. The IHA Program Governance Committee approves all responses, including applicable changes, before the AMP team incorporates updates into final measure sets and specifications.
Thank you to everyone who provided feedback on MY 2022 updates! We appreciate your input across topics like the new race and ethnicity stratifications for select NCQA HEDIS measures, changes to the timeline for testing Depression Patient-Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs), and how to scale industry alignment on advancing primary care.
