As part of an effort to produce more accurate, comprehensive measure of the quality of service at the provider level, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has announced a California collaborative as its newest participant.

Through the Better Quality Information to Improve Care for Medicare Beneficiaries (BQI) project, the California Cooperative Health Care Reporting Initiative (CCHRI) will combine its claims data or clinical information with that of Medicare to provide consistent measures of the quality of provider services.

Currently, the BQI project is being implemented in four regional collaboratives around the country.

The Health IT Summits gather 250+ healthcare leaders in cities across the U.S. to present important new insights, collaborate on ideas, and to have a little fun - Find a Summit Near You!
