CQMs can be measures of processes, experiences and/or outcomes of patient care, observations or treatment. Measuring the quality of patient care with CQMs helps to drive quality improvements in health care.
From the main menu, select EHR Advanced and click on Clinical Quality Measures. Provide DOS date range. Other optional parameters are Legal Entity and Provider. Click on Search and the CQM screen will populate as in Image 1.
To select a measure, click on the Active checkbox(highlighted in Image 2).
For each Clinical Quality Measure, the patients queried for the reporting measure can be listed from the CQM screen. The columns ‘Initial Population’ and ‘Denominator(Eligible Instances)’ are made hyperlinks. When clicked on the link, it opens an excel spreadsheet listing the patients used in the measure calculation. Image 3 demonstrates this.
