Abstract
Risk adjustment is a critical tool in public reporting of quality measures. Its aim is to level the playing field so that providers serving different patients can be meaningfully compared. We used a theory and evidence-based approach to develop risk-adjustment models for the 10 publicly reported home health quality measures and compared their performance with current models developed using a data-driven stepwise approach.
