Healthcare services need to be measured for quality and efficiency. The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) uses Clinical Quality Measures (CQMs) to measure the quality of healthcare services. This is applicable to all Eligible Hospitals and Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs), Eligible Professionals (EPs) and Eligible Clinicians participating in programs Medicare Incentive, Medicaid Incentive and Quality Payment Programs.
The assessment of specific clinical process and outcome needs to be performed and reported electronically (eCQM). There are challenges in capturing the measure accurately and clearly, pulling data from CDS and analysing for action and reporting electronically. Payments are tied to measuring quality and reporting it in a timely manner. Mistakes in interpreting and calculating can be costly for the clinics.
Healthcare providers are required to report CQMs electronically (eCQM) by using the data extracted from health information systems like EHRs (Electronic Health Records). The CMS uses eCQMs for a wide variety of reporting and value-based purchasing programs, including the assessment of treatment outcomes by healthcare providers and organizations.
