Developing, Evaluating, and Pilot-Testing Electronic Health Record–Based Quality Indicators for Ambulatory Care


By significantly enhancing the measurement and evaluation of medical care, electronic health records (EHRs) have the potential to improve care processes and patient outcomes. This project will address the need for standard methods of assessing performance through EHR-based data by developing a framework for EHR-based measures of quality. Through review of the professional literature and interviews with key informants, the investigators will identify a set of core quality indicators. A compendium of these measures will result, along with case examples comparing the utility of typical HEDIS quality indicators with that of the new EHR-based indicators. Throughout the project, investigators will work closely with national organizations engaged in quality measurement to disseminate project results to the public and private sectors. The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation will provide cofunding for this project.
