Diabetes and hypertension quality measurement in four safety-net sites: lessons learned after implementation of the same commercial electronic health record.
The authors described what implementation of a commercially available EHR with built-in quality query algorithms showed us about our care for diabetes and hypertension populations in four safety net clinics. They found that utilizing a shared EHR, a Regional Extension Center-like partnership model, and similar quality query algorithms allowed safety-net clinics to benchmark and improve the quality of care across differing patient populations and health care delivery models.
