The Primary Care Clinician Report Card Initiative was created in alignment with Office of Health Transformation's goals of transparency and improved performance by providing meaningful information to those who provide healthcare services. Through the primary Care Clinician Report Cards, clinicians will be able to compare their performance to the performance of other clinicians serving the Medicaid population in Ohio and take important steps to improve the quality of care delivered to and health outcomes of Medicaid patients.
This is a reminder, Episodes of Care Performance Reports are posted on the MITS Portal under the Report tab for Hospitals, Physicians, Group Providers, Clinics and Federally Qualified Health Centers. These reports show your cost of care per Episode, how your costs compare to your peers and should be shared with your Organization’s Leadership including your Medical Director/Quality Management. Your Portal Administrator has the role to view these reports. If you have questions about these reports or how to access them, call ODM Provider Services at 1-800-686-1516.
