eMeasure Feasibility Testing
As quality measurement shifts to measures derived from electronic health records (EHRs), there is less clarity about the testing needed to assure that eMeasures can be used for a range of accountability applications, which require both precision, and results that are reliable and valid. Realizing the promise of EHRs as a tool for quality reporting will rest on the ability of providers, payers, vendors and other users of the information to know that eMeasures provide valid and reliable data. Yet there is little clarity from the field as to what constitutes feasibility testing for EHRs. This reports assesses the current state of feasibility testing for new and retooled eMeasures and identifies an important set of principles and criteria for adequate feasibility testing.
