RHP 2 Performing Providers and Stakeholders:
Please see the e-mail below from HHSC regarding Category 3 as we discussed in our meeting today. Also, HHSC has provided some important information on 3 Year Projects and October reporting.

We have some updates on a few topics:
Attached are two documents related to Category 3 Alternate Improvement Activities: a description of Stretch Activities and one for Priority Population Focused Measures. The new Priority Population Focused Measures spreadsheet includes tabs for Hospital PPE measures, Community Mental Health Center (CMHC) specific measures, and Physician Practice specific measures. These documents will also be updated on the website.
The selection tool, companion document and additional resources around outcome selection, measurement and reporting will be available next week.

As mentioned previously, HHSC is prioritizing review of new 3-year projects from the four RHPs not able to use much of their DSRIP allocation in the original plan submission (RHPs 5, 8, 17 and 20).
RHPs 8 and 17 will be receiving feedback today (2/14/14) and the other two early next week. The feedback will be provided to anchors with the expectation that anchors will coordinate with providers (providers will also be receiving a copy of the email from HHSC). Workbooks will be posted on the waiver website as soon as possible once an RHP has been notified. Feedback will be at the provider level and project level. Please read and follow the instructions carefully!
October reporting – NMI metrics
HHSC has completed the review of documentation submitted for NMI metrics for October DY2 reporting. We had planned to be able to send the feedback to providers today, but we will instead be sending it early next week.
Please let us know if you have any questions, but be advised that Monday, February 17 is a federal/state holiday so not all waiver staff will be in the office and you may not receive a response to your inquiry until Tuesday.
