Bottom Line: The Medicare Health Outcomes Survey (HOS) is a longitudinal cohort study that assesses physical and mental functioning of Medicare enrollees in MCPs.Realizing the potential of HOS data to improve health care, the Florida Medicare Quality Improvement Organization (QIO) analyzed HOS scores and shared them with M+COs to assist in evaluating the efficacy of their disease management programs.The QIO also discusses additional uses for HOS data such as cross-linking with a patient satisfaction survey and sharing with health care organizations that collaborate with the QIO.

f1-hcfr-25-4-093: Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) Mental Component Summary (MCS) and Physical Component Summary (PCS) Scores for Florida's Medicare+Choice Organization-I: 1998-2001

Mentions: One particular M+CO with good documentation of its CHF and diabetes program, start dates, and specific intervention dates was analyzed separately. MCS and PCS scores were examined over time for this M+CO, which was identified as M+CO-I. A significant improvement was seen in CHF PCS scores over time for M+CO-I (Figure 1), as noted with most of the M+COs. CHF MCS scores for M+CO-I showed no significant improvement, nor did the MCS CHF scores for most of the other M+COs. Diabetes scores for M+CO-I showed a slight improvement in PCS, but no improvement for MCS (Figure 2).
