Abstract

Conclusions The 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. Implications As the healthcare system migrates towards a value-based payment system these broad challenges will need to be addressed.
