Better Evidence. Better Decisions. Better Health: e-Clinical Quality Measures
An Academy Health Webinar
Electronic clinical quality measures (eCQMs) provide an opportunity to objectively evaluate care practices and set goals to improve value-based care. Daniella Meeker, Ph.D., the Director of Research Informatics at the University of Southern California, will present the goals and findings from her collaborative project “Distributed Networks for Electronic Quality Measure Development and Evaluation,” including a demonstration of the Research Network software, which she and her team have developed. Dr. Meeker will address ways the research and measure development communities can work together to develop new measures that are potentially more efficient, valid and useful, and can also support a more sustainable infrastructure for measure development and research.
During this webinar, participants will:
- Understand how to operationalize the learning health system by shrinking the “17-year Odyssey” between evidence generation and PCOR adoption;
- Discuss collaborative connections between stakeholders to eliminate current barriers in the use of eCQMs;
- Understand new opportunities to participate in the collaborative development of new measures that are more fully integrated into research, evaluation, and policy.

Better Health. will share tools and methods being developed and used in learning health systems to address challenges in achieving better patient care. A series of ‘upstream’ uses of lessons learned from patient-centered outcomes research (PCOR) will be featured, including approaches to develop and test e-Clinical Quality Measures (eCQMs), clinical decision support (CDS), and evaluate the evidentiary needs of payers and purchasers.
