To prepare for the shift to pay-for-performance, many primary care practices are participating in formal quality improvement initiatives. Each of these initiatives requires clinical quality measure reporting. Many payers require reporting on selected clinical quality measures too. Practices are reporting burnout associated with these increased demands and limited resources. A solution to alleviate some of the burden is by proactively identifying overlap in CQMs.
HealthTeamWorks® has developed a CQM Prioritization Tool to help practices align this work, strategically prioritize and focus their quality improvement efforts. This is intended to be a flexible tool so that you can efficiently evaluate your clinical quality measures so that you are identifying and prioritizing opportunities, looking at current state, and seeing if it is where you want to be.
This worksheet includes selected measures for common initiatives.
To customize this document to reflect an individual clinic’s reporting, please complete the following.
This concrete alignment and prioritization helps practices focus you improvement work.
