Join Acumentra Health, Medicare's Quality Improvement Organization for Oregon, in harnessing EHRs and communities to improve care in Oregon!
We are bringing together Oregon medical practices, patients, and community stakeholders in initiatives inspired by the CMS Three-Part Aim—better health, better care, lower costs.
Our initiatives run through July 2014 and focus on helping practices use health information technology (HIT) such as electronic health records (EHRs) to improve care delivery and outcomes, and to qualify for HIT-based incentives. Two initiatives are learning and action networks (LANs)—communities of practice that use an “everyone teaches, everyone learns” approach to maximize the spread of improvement methods and successful interventions.
Acumentra Health's PQRS EHR Reporting Project offers support for EHR-based participation in the federal Physician Quality Reporting System incentive program.
From 2008 through 2011, Acumentra Health assisted 26 Oregon primary care practices in using their electronic health record (EHR) systems for improving preventive care services and reporting clinical data. The EHR Preventive Care Initiative expanded a previous 3-year project that helped more than 40 practices select and implement EHRs under the Doctor's Office Quality–Information Technology (DOQ–IT) initiative.
