Electronic measures, or eMeasures, are playing an increasingly crucial role in quality improvement initiatives. eMeasures automate the calculation of Clinical Quality Measures (CQMs) from electronic health record data, driving quality and process improvement by standardizing information and making it accessible. Eligible Hospitals (EHs) and Eligible Professionals (EPs) that have completed Meaningful Use Stage 1 are required to electronically calculate and submit CQMs for Stage 2. Ultimately, eMeasures are expected replace traditional measure definitions and pave the way for measures alignment across federal, state and local quality measure programs.
In this webinar we will cover:
- Background, benefits and challenges of eMeasures
- Challenges with data and measures calculation
- Selecting and submitting measures data
- Identifying opportunities for improving data quality and other benefits of eMeasures
- eMeasures solutions
