Permission to Use Measures
Commercial Distribution License Application
Vendors interested in incorporating measures developed by PCPI® into their electronic health record systems or other products for quality improvement purposes may download and submit a distribution license agreement.
Restrictions on Development of Derivative Works of PCPI Measures
Measures, while copyrighted, can be reproduced and distributed, without modification, for noncommercial purposes, e.g., use by health care providers in connection with their practices. Commercial use of the measures in which the American Medical Association (AMA) and/or PCPI hold copyright requires a license agreement between the user and the AMA and/or PCPI, prior to use. In addition, the development by a third party of derivative works (e.g., electronic clinical quality measure (eCQMs), eMeasure Specifications or Clinical Decision Support Knowledge Artifacts) of measures in which AMA or PCPI hold copyright, requires that permission be obtained in advance from the AMA or PCPI. For information about derivative works, please contact PCPI staff at email@example.com.
