During this webinar, the speakers will review the medication-related quality measures in the Star Ratings, specific performance trends, and measures that may become Display measures or new Star Rating measures for future calendar years. Additionally, participants will hear about updates to Pharmacy Quality Alliance (PQA)-endorsed measures included in Part D quality programs and highlights on new measure concepts in PQA’s development pipeline.
