About PQA, Inc.
PQA, the Pharmacy Quality Alliance, is the nation’s leading developer of consensus-based measures for medication safety, adherence and appropriate use. A non-profit organization with more than 250 diverse members across healthcare, PQA’s quality initiatives support improvements in medication use and medication services. PQA was established in 2006 as a public-private partnership with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services shortly after the implementation of the Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Benefit.
PQA was created because prescription drug programs were a major area of health care where there was no organization or national program focused on quality improvement. PQA measures help healthcare professionals assess the quality of health plans and the services they cover. They are used in the Medicare Star Ratings program and Medicaid and have been endorsed or implemented by numerous other healthcare organizations.
PQA members include community and specialty pharmacy organizations, pharmacists and other healthcare providers, pharmacies, health plans, pharmacy benefit managers, life sciences, technology vendors, government agencies, health information technology partners, researchers, accrediting organizations and academia.
