Standardization and Automatic Extraction of Quality Measures in an Ambulatory Electronic Medical Record (EMR)
Citizens Memorial Healthcare (CMH) will establish the standardization efforts necessary for data capture of quality measures in an ambulatory EMR system and demonstrate the efficiency and accuracy of using a data extraction and reporting expert to perform quality measurement in the ambulatory care setting. CMH will standardize and integrate data capture for quality of care measurement into the normal documentation of care within the ambulatory EMR.
Created a community-wide EMR with integrated clinical decision support that is available across the continuum of care including a rural hospital, a home health agency, 14 physician clinics, and 5 long-term care facilities.
