The Digital Measures Collaborative

The Digital Measures Collaborative is a joint effort between NCQA and its stakeholders to redefine quality measurement and learn how to support programs that use electronic clinical data for quality improvement. 

The health IT community is continuously seeking efficient methods of data collection for quality reporting—specifically, for solutions to ease reporting’s significant labor and financial burdens. Measure developers such as NCQA want to find methods for assessing performance that will return reliable information on the quality of care delivery from a distributed and heterogeneous ECDS environment.

The collaborative will be testing digital measurement applications in real world systems of care and reporting back on the challenges and successes to the group. NCQA will actively engage as many participants as possible to contribute to our shared objective of improving the quality of healthcare using a peer-to-peer problem solving process.

The Collaborative is a platform for sharing experiences and best practices for reporting measures electronically and providing feedback on how to achieve a “proof of concept” for digital HEDIS measures. NCQA will be disseminating information from the Digital Measure Collaborative.
