This AHRQ resource builds practices’ capacity to access accurate and reliable data from their information systems and to use these data to guide improvement work. It teaches how to use both paper and electronic systems to assess performance.
This resource shows how to design reports for quality improvement (QI) purposes, including different types of reports and different ways of generating them from electronic health records (EHRs). It includes checklists for finding data errors.
This resource explains how to create and maintain standardized, up-to-date patient problem lists in electronic health records (EHRs) in order to improve practices’ ability to generate accurate quality improvement data.
Based on real-world experience, this manual guides primary care practices through the process of developing and implementing clinical decision support (CDS), from defining the project through implementation and sustaining improvements.
This learning guide explains how to improve electronic health record (EHR) data quality to stimulate practice quality improvement.
This resource introduces ways electronic health records (EHRs) can support quality improvement (QI) in primary care practices.
This case study of a primary care practice provides insight into the clinic’s quality improvement project to improve blood pressure control. It highlights the steps in the quality improvement (QI) process, future measures, and lessons learned.
This AHRQ resource explains how practices can use health information technology (IT) tools - such as electronic health records (EHRs), data registries, decision support, and health information exchange systems - to improve quality and patient outcomes.
