Massoudi, B., Marcial, L., Tant, E., Adler-Milstein, J., & West, S. (2016). Using health information exchanges to calculate clinical quality measures: A study of barriers and facilitators. Healthcare (Amsterdam, Netherlands), 4(2), 104-108. DOI: 10.1016/j.hjdsi.2016.04.003
ConclusionsThe ability to compute CQMs at the HIE level is still yet to be developed; currently, very few HIEs are able to do so for a variety of reasons. As HIE services expand and HIEs mature organizationally, the viability and utility of CQM reporting at the HIE level will increase.ImplicationsAs the healthcare system migrates towards a value-based payment system these broad challenges will need to be addressed.
