Clinical-Community Relationships Measures (CCRM) Atlas

This chapter presents specific measure mapping tables with profiles for each measure. Each individual measure has a measure profile designed to provide more detailed information on the measure's purpose, format and data source, validation and testing, applications, and key sources. Table 5-1 below provides an index to the measure numbers (left column) cited in the Master Measure Mapping Table (Table 4-1) and the order in which the individual measure mapping tables with profiles appear in this chapter.
