Health IT Expert Panel II (HITEP II)
Meaningful healthcare quality measurement depends on collecting and reporting precise performance data. Developing and implementing electronic health record (EHR) systems should facilitate the seamless collection of these data, but most EHR systems are insufficient to support quality measurement as it is envisioned to assist broad health reform efforts. NQF’s Quality Data Set aims to provide direction to measure developers, EHR vendors, and other stakeholders on how to define quality terminology without ambiguity.
