Clinical Quality Measures, or CQMs, are the data points that CMS utilizes to measure and track the quality of health care services provided to patients. These measures assess the provider’s ability to deliver high-quality care including:

Health outcomes
Clinical processes
Patient safety
Efficient use of healthcare resources
Care coordination
Patient engagement
Public health and population health
Adherence to clinical guidelines

For practices planning on participating in MU/MIPS and reporting CQMs, its important to utilize a CQM tool to track your progress. By measuring this data consistently, many providers experience enhanced preventative care, improved care delivery and increased bottom line.
