Public Comment on Enhancements to the E&M Process

In response to recent feedback received from E&M committee members and measure developers/stewards regarding the Fall 2023 cycle, Battelle seeks to implement several changes to the E&M committee roles, voting, and meeting structure. Taking effect in the Spring 2024 cycle, the proposed changes discussed below are intended to: 

  • Enhance the engagement and participation of Advisory Group members, patient partners, and members of the public;
  • Reduce burden for E&M committee members (both Advisory and Recommendations Groups); and
  • Mitigate confusion of roles for E&M committee members by aligning processes across both E&M and the Pre-Rulemaking Measure Review (PRMR).


Overall, the proposed changes are designed to enhance consensus-building, capturing measure review input in a less burdensome way, while maintaining diversity of voices.


The proposed changes to be implemented for the Spring 2024 cycle and beyond include: 

  • Advisory Group Meetings
  • Voting 
  • Recommendations Group Size 
  • Public Comment Listening Sessions 
  • Committee Independent Review Ratings 


Public Comments on the proposed changes were submitted from March 1 through 11:59 p.m. (ET) March 22. To  view all comments received, please navigate to the following page on the PQM website:
