CMS, AHRQ, and ONC Integrate eCQI Resource Center with USHIK
CMS, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), and ONC have integrated the eCQI Resource Center with United States Health Information Knowledgebase (USHIK). USHIK is a publicly available database with technical measures and specifications for calculating quality metrics established for federal payment reimbursements. The recent integration allows users to compare different versions and metadata of electronic Clinical Quality Measures. Users can also download measure version details in several file formats for use in different software programs. The new functionality is found in the measure tables: Eligible Hospitals and Eligible Professionals.
