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).

Tools are that help with the development, testing and certification of eCQMs are highlighted on the eCQM tools page.
