PCPI develops specifications for multiple data source implementations, with an emphasis on specifications for electronic health records (EHRs) and clinical data registries. We bring expertise in the development of health quality measures format (HQMF) electronic clinical quality measure (eCQM) specifications in accordance with nationally adopted standards, models and tools. 

Key measure specification considerations:
  • Data source(s) for implementation
  • Data elements required to express measure intent are clearly defined
  • Clinical terminologies for reporting of quality measure data

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) have created the eCQI Resource Center for all things CQM related, which is free and accessible to the public.
