Clinical-Community Relationships Measures (CCRM) Atlas

The Clinical-Community Relationships Measures (CCRM) Atlas was developed to identify ways to further define, measure, and evaluate programs based on clinical-community relationships for the delivery of clinical preventive services. The CCRM Atlas provides a measurement framework and listing of existing measures of clinical-community relationships, and is intended to support research and evaluation in the field.
