Psychologists’ voice in quality improvement programs and data

collection.
The APA has provided criteria for evaluating quality improvement plans and use of quality improvement data (2009). Recognizing that both public and private third party payers are interested in pay for performance programs, APA provided recommendations, including but not limited to 1) psychologists and recipients of psychological services must be involved in program design 2) programs must be evidenced/research-based;
3) data should take into account patient characteristics and be designed to reduce health disparities and, 4) measure used should be reliable, valid, and sensitive to change. Psychologists must have a voice in determining appropriate quality and outcomes measures according to Dr. Katherine Nordal, Executive Director of Professional Practice APA (2012).
