Massachusetts Health Quality Partners (MHQP, Watertown, Mass.) will be working with HLTH Corporation's ViPS subsidiary on a pilot project — part of the Department of Health and Human Services' Value-driven Health Care Initiative — to allow MHQP to evaluate physician performance.

According to HLTH (Elmwood Park, N.J.), it will base physician performance on specified quality measures by aggregating commercial, Medicare, and potentially Medicaid claims data and analyzing that data using ViPS' performance measurement software.

This effort is part of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) project known as Better Quality Information to Improve Care for Medicare Beneficiaries (BQI), contends the company.
