Electronic Clinical Quality Improvement (eCQI)

Electronic Clinical Quality Improvement (eCQI) uses a variety of processes , health IT tools, standards and measurement to help continuously improve the quality of care, support improved health and outcomes. Health IT enables this improvement through the rapid feedback of performance via electronic clinical quality measures (eCQMs) as well as real-time improvement tools such as clinical decision support (CDS).

Specifications for electronic clinical quality measures for use in Medicare and Medicaid programs are created by CMS and certified by ONC. Measures quantify improvement in the quality and safety of care, health outcomes of populations, and provider and patient experience of care. The standards used for the electronic representation of quality data formats in eCQMs are proposed and approved by standards organizations and stakeholders in the eCQI community and approved by CMS for measures used within their quality incentive programs. Tools are that help with the development, testing and certification of eCQMs are highlighted on the eCQM tools page.
