What is an eMeasure?

An eMeasure is a quality measure represented in structured Health Quality Measure Format (HQMF) so that it can be interpreted by information systems such as an electronic health record (EHR) system.

Doctors, hospitals and others use EHRs and other health information technology systems as the data sources for measuring health care performance, and many would like to imbed NQF-endorsed® measures into their systems to automate the measurement process.
