Using Elation’s CQM dashboard to monitor CPC+ performance September 6, 2017

With the first CPC+ performance period now well underway, Elation is excited to bring our users weekly updates to help you save time, get the most out of using Elation for CPC+, provide better care for your patients and ultimately succeed in this program. Learn more about Elation and CPC+ here.

Clinical quality measures (CQMs) are at the heart of meeting CPC+ requirements and staying on track with the program. But while CPC+ physicians might be familiar with CQMs themselves, how can physicians keep track of their progress toward fulfilling these measures? Having a CQM dashboard can help!

What is a CQM dashboard?

A CQM dashboard is a built feature that gives users a real time snapshot into current performance. CPC+ participants can utilize this dashboard to stay on top of the program.

How can you use Elation’s CQM dashboard?

Within the reports section in Elation, users can select the CPC+ button to access the CPC+ CQM dashboard. This dashboard displays relevant CQMs and how a practice is performing against 50% and 80% benchmarks. Each CQM corresponds to a help center article that is accessible by just clicking on the CQM name.

The dashboard highlights completion once you hit a benchmark by displaying the CQM in orange (for the 50% benchmarks) or green (for the 80% benchmarks).

Elation’s dashboard also gives users a more detailed overview of patients that either meets criteria or does not meet criteria within the patient list by displaying details such as the patient’s last visit. From here you can click the patient’s name to document completion of a screening,  schedule the patient for a follow up visit, or take any other necessary actions.

How can you leverage a CQM dashboard for CPC+?

CPC+ requires its participants to meet 9 measures within the 50% benchmark and 6 measures within the 80% benchmark. By using Elation’s CQM dashboard, users can check their CPC+ progress quickly and easily and zero in on areas to focus on when it comes to patient care.
