RCI Award Criteria
Starting in 2011, the Right Care Initiative launched new categories of award levels based on health plan and medical group performance. The awards established platinum, gold, silver, and bronze levels of performance. The awards reflect the importance of reaching control measure benchmarks in critical areas of care management, acknowledging excellent performance in preventing heart attacks, strokes, and diabetic complications. As of 2016, the award categories are:
- Platinum level of performance = National 90th percentile of HEDIS performance across all Diabetes and Cardiovascular Disease measures. (or all equivalent IHA P4P cardiovascular disease and diabetes measures).
- Gold level of performance = National 90th percentile of performance across all of the CONTROL measures: blood pressure, lipids and blood sugar.
- Silver level of performance = National 90th percentile of performance for the control of Blood Pressure and Cholesterol for cardiovascular, hypertensive and diabetic patients.
- Bronze level of performance = National 90th percentile of performance in any one of the Right Care Initiative designated control measures: Blood Pressure, Cholesterol, or Blood Sugar.
Note: For control of lipids, statin therapy is the current proxy measure.
