Since beginning its performance measures development work in 2006, the AGA has developed measures around several digestive health conditions and procedures. Some have been co-developed with other medical societies and the PCPI and some have been developed by the AGA as a single developer. Both approaches have used a multi-specialty, modified Delphi development model.
The AGA’s co-development efforts have been through the American Medical Association (AMA) convened Physician Consortium for Performance Improvement® (PCPI) process. The PCPI develops, tests, and maintains of evidence-based clinical performance measures and measurement resources for physicians. The PCPI is comprised of over 170 national medical specialty societies, state medical societies, the American Board of Medical Specialties and member boards, Council of Medical Specialty Societies, health-care professional organizations, federal agencies, individual members and others interested in improving the quality and efficiency of patient care.
