Measurement Systems Toolkit

Each year HANC works in collaboration with its clinic and health center members to develop datasets on clinical, operational, patient experience, and financial performance measures. Many of these measures are part of the Uniform Data System (UDS) reporting process required of federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) and FQHC Look-a-Likes. This year working along side with The North Coast Clinics Network (NCCN) and Partnership HealthPlan of California (PHC) these datasets have been expanded to include data from the NCCN member clinics and are now a part of a larger and more robust toolkit entitled Health Center Quality Measurement Systems: a guide to clinical performance measurement sets.

The goal of this toolkit is to aide Quality Improvement (QI) staff and all those concerned in the navigation of the complexities of common clinical measurement sets and further the understanding of their requirements within the context of regional clinical performance data.
