Value Set Harmonization
Electronic clinical data standards and reusable “building blocks” of code vocabularies known as value sets, are key to accurate and consistent reporting of electronic clinical quality measures across disparate systems. However, both vendors and stakeholders have reported that many value sets are overlapping or redundant in defining specific conditions or interventions. NQF initiated a project to develop and test a value set harmonization criteria and approval process to promote consistency and accuracy in value sets, and offer guidance on how approved value sets should be integrated into the eCQM endorsement process.
