Our Associate Director of Registry Programs, Chrystal Price, attended the #DQS2019 NCQA and Health Level Seven® (HL7) International’s third annual Digital Quality Summit, an interactive event focused on innovative solutions to the burdens of quality measurement. A major takeaway was that in order to achieve meaningful use of the right healthcare data, used at the right time, for the right patient, we will have to utilize multiple modalities of data collection and dissemination.

 

Micky Tripathi, PhD, MPP commented, “some of our biggest clients asked us to include manual data abstraction. All the electronic stuff is great but there are still gaps in measurement. We do have a FHIR server, but it has gotten zero attention except from testers.” The summit featured small group discussion, panel sessions, and keynotes from industry leaders such as John Halamka, MD, MS, International Healthcare Innovation Professor at Harvard Medical School, Chief Information Officer of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Micky Tripathi, PhD, MPP, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Massachusetts eHealth Collaborative (MAeHC.). 

 

Major takeaways from the conference focused on the healthcare quality industry being at the apex of moving into digital health. During a panel session on electronic clinical quality measures (eCQMs) and electronic clinical data systems measures (eCDS), Leila Maves, MBA, Certified HEDIS Compliance Auditor mentioned that “We are at the peak of burden,” a sentiment that was echoed throughout all conference sessions. The conference highlighted the fact that in order to achieve meaningful use of the right healthcare data, used at the right time, for the right patient, we will have to utilize multiple modalities of data collection and dissemination. Micky Tripathi, PhD, MPP commented, “some of our biggest clients asked us to include manual data abstraction. All the electronic stuff is great but there are still gaps in measurement.
