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. 

Learning Objectives

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.

Speaker: Daniella Meeker, Ph.D., the Director of Research Informatics at the University of Southern California
Reactors: Michael Sacca, Executive Director at Health Services Advisory Group (HSAG); Helen Burstin, MD, MPH, FACP, Chief Scientific Officer of The National Quality Forum
