The AAN views Public Comment periods as essential to the measure development process, and your expert opinion is needed on ten performance measures developed for Parkinson's disease.

The 30-day, open Public Comment period on the Parkinson's Disease Measures is from Wednesday, September 9, to Friday, October 9, at 6:00 pm ET.

The commenting period will only be available between these two dates.

During the Public Comment period, anyone may comment on each individual measure and on the measurement set overall.

View the full measurement set and leave your comments.

Note that all posted comments will become part of public record.

The AAN is committed to enhancing quality of care and patient safety by taking the lead in the development, testing, and maintenance of evidence-based clinical performance measures for neurologic conditions. These measures can be used by neurologists and other practitioners for accountability, in quality improvement programs, or in pay-for-reporting programs such as the CMS Physician Quality Reporting Initiative (PQRI).
