The De Novo Measure Scan (DNMS) is a new, advanced feature of the Environmental Scanning Support Tool (ESST) on the controlled access CMIT site. The DNMS helps measure developers conduct early and frequent environmental scans while developing new measures. The DNMS uses a Clinical Quality Measure (CQM) ontology to describe a measure and represent quality measure concepts. Components of the ontology include target population, health status or utilization, change concept, expected output of the change concept, and care setting. The DNMS uses structured search terms to represent the measure concepts to build a new measure and uses artificial intelligence to identify and prioritize the most relevant PubMed, PubMed Central, and Cumulative Index of Nursing and Allied Health Literature (CINAHL) related literature.
