Clinical quality measure exchange is not easy.
The Trial of Aggregate Data Exchange for Maintenance of Certification and Raising Quality was a randomized controlled trial which first had to test whether quality reporting could be a by-product of clinical care. The investigators reported on the initial descriptive study of the capacity for and quality of exchange of whole-panel, standardized quality measures from health systems. They concluded that the secure transfer of standardized, physician-level quality measures from 4 health systems with mature measure processes proved difficult. There were many errors that required human intervention and manual repair, precluding full automation.
