Variation in Outcomes of Quality Measurement by Data Source

Using quality measures (BMI calculation rate and immunization rates) defined by the Children’s Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act, researchers using data from the OCHIN network of community health centers determined whether successful calculation of these measures could be enhanced by the use of EHR data in addition to the traditional claims data. BMI calculation rates went up significantly when EHR data was used, and immunization rates went up when EHR data was combined with claims data.
