Clinical Quality Measures

Clinical quality measures, or CQMs, help track the quality of healthcare services provided by EPs and EHs. Based on a variety of data, CQMs measure many aspects of patient care such as health outcomes, clinical processes, patient safety, efficient use of healthcare resources, care coordination, patient engagements, population and public health, and clinical guidelines. Tracking and reporting these CQMs helps ensure that health care services are effective, efficient, and patient-centered. One of the components of demonstrating Meaningful Use is to report on Clinical Quality Measures.
