Collaborative for Performance Measure Integration with EHR Systems

The Collaborative for Performance Measure Integration with Electronic Health Record (EHR) Systems (Collaborative), initiated in 2006, is co-sponsored by the American Medical Association, the HIMSS Electronic Health Record Association (ERHA), and the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA).

Measure development organizations such as the AMA-convened Physician Consortium for Performance Improvement® (PCPI®) and the NCQA have developed performance measures designed to assist physicians in improving the quality of patient care delivered in the ambulatory environment and EHR vendors are working to incorporate performance measure functionality into EHR products.

The Collaborative is comprised of a group of stakeholders—performance measure developers, EHR vendors, expert EHR users, national quality improvement organizations and technical experts in physician performance measurement and quality improvement—who have a shared goal of facilitating the integration of performance measures with EHR systems.
