The Toolkit for Clinical Quality Metric Extraction was created by the Healthy Hearts Northwest project as a guide for practice facilitators and primary care clinic staff in using health information technology to support quality improvement. Current as of April 2019, this toolkit was created to be used as a step-by-step guide for quality improvement reporting for any Clinical Quality Measure (CQM).  Topics include:

  • Understanding CQM basics
  • Choosing a data-extraction approach
  • Self-assessing a practice’s ability to report
  • Validating aggregate-level data
  • Creating data visualizations
  • Getting buy-in to use health information technology
