This module provides guidance on assisting practices to identify the clinical performance areas they want to assess in an effort to improve clinical process and patient outcomes.
Performance measurement involves collecting and reporting data on practices’ clinical processes and outcomes. Measuring clinical performance can create buy-in for improvement work in the practice and enables the practice to track their improvements over time. This information should also be used to identify and prioritize improvement goals and to track progress toward those goals. In addition, these data should be used to monitor maintenance of changes already made.
