About eCQI

Electronic Clinical Quality Improvement (eCQI)

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) are working to improve the health of our nation by transforming care from a volume-based, provider-centered system to a value-based, patient-centered, learning health system. This work includes using quality measurement to improve care given to patients by measuring how patients are treated and, most importantly, how well those patients do afterward. Electronic clinical quality improvement (eCQI) provides common standards and shared technologies to monitor and analyze the quality of healthcare provided to patients and patient outcomes.
