Health Information Technology-Enabled Quality Measurement

Health Information Technology (HIT) and Health Information Exchanges (HIEs) play a fundamental role in the national quality measurement landscape. However, these infrastructures are not currently being used to their full potential by stakeholders when conducting quality measurement and reporting activities. While the benefits of HIT-enabled quality measurement remain evident, many healthcare stakeholders have yet to fully adopt NYS’ HIT/HIEs for their quality measurement initiatives. The benefits of fully realized quality measurement include:

  • Improved healthcare quality
  • Improved healthcare outcomes
  • Minimized reporting errors
  • Promotion of transparent reporting
  • Elimination of inefficiencies

HIT-Enabled QM Roadmap

The annual HIT-Enabled Quality Measurement Roadmap documents the current and planned activities the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) is engaged in to advance the state’s HIT-enabled quality measurement initiatives. The roadmap is informed by policy and regulatory changes, findings from collaborative quality measurement projects, and healthcare priorities.
