CQMs Clinical Quality Measures 101In the past 10 years, clinical quality measures (CQMs) have become an integral component in the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS) drive to improve quality, reduce costs and expand access to healthcare for Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries and, ultimately, for all patients in the U.S. Although quality-reporting programs such as meaningful use provide incentives to help providers implement and use electronic health records (EHRs) to collect and report on clinical data, practices often need help deciding what data to collect, which measures to report on, and how to best use their EHRs to do so.
The following provides you with the basic information you need to choose appropriate CQMs for your practice, and offers tips on how to use your EHR to store the data in a structured format.
Quality measures and incentive programs
As part of meaningful use (MU) and other quality-reporting programs, eligible CQM (EPs) must report on a selection of clinical quality measures (CQMs) set forth by CMS.
Significant changes have been made to how CQMs are used under CMS quality-reporting programs, including the Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) and the EHR Incentive Program (meaningful use). CMS has worked hard to align the quality-reporting requirements across the various programs. As a result, providers have the option to use the same set of quality measures to report CQMs for both PQRS and meaningful use.

2 Surprising Truths About Viral Content (And 2 Things It Means For Your Business!)When it comes to your business, the difference between viral marketing and viral content matters. Think about it: when was the last time you were truly enlightened by a BuzzFeed list? How about that meme you just had to share with 15 people - is that really something you’re going to remember next week? Probably not. These are examples of viral marketing that reach a huge number of people but, for the most part, are quickly forgotten.
On the other hand, you likely remember exactly where you read that extremely useful, in-depth article that actually made a difference with a problem you were having. The number of shares this useful article got paled in comparison to the mildly funny list, but that’s not what affects you. For you and others who are searching for similar answers, timeliness and value are much more important than a fleeting chuckle or a brief, “that’s pretty cool” moment.
