2017 Pioneers in Quality Proven Practices Collection

April 18, 2017

Enter your eCQM success stories for recognition by The Joint Commission and inclusion in the 2017 Pioneers in Quality™: Proven Practices Collection.

Organizations that achieved eCQM reporting for 2016 demonstrated a commitment to leveraging health IT for quality measurement.  For many organizations, successful capture and submission of eCQMs was not without challenge, and was a significant milestone in the use of health IT for quality improvement.

With the “Pioneers in Quality: Proven Practices Collection,” The Joint Commission seeks to recognize those organizations that leverage eCQMs and health IT to drive quality improvement, and share success stories with accredited organizations on the journey to measuring and improving care through health IT.

The accomplishments of Proven Practice applicants should be clearly linked to the use of eCQMs and health IT for quality improvement. Topics of interest include:

  • Using eCQMs as part of organizational quality improvement efforts
  • Harmonizing clinical decision support and quality measurement
  • Optimizing clinical workflow to support eCQM collection alongside quality care
  • Managing clinical and administrative data effectively
  • Aligning quality reporting and operational measurement goals
  • Educating clinicians on quality improvement and electronic data collection

If you have a solution addressing one or more of these practices, we encourage you to submit your success story for inclusion in the Proven Practices Collection.

Selected organizations will be recognized as a Pioneer in Quality Solution Contributor in The Joint Commission annual report, and their success stories shared in the Proven Practices Collection.
The Joint Commission is committed to supporting organizations in the adoption of eCQMs, and invites you to share clinical quality improvement using eCQMs and health IT.

The Proven Practices Collection
The Joint Commission seeks to support organizations adopting eCQMs and health IT-driven quality improvement, by enabling the sharing of leading practices. The Proven Practices Collection will be a new print resource available to Joint Commission accredited organizations. In addition, selected organizations will be invited to present their Proven Practices as part of The Joint Commission’s Pioneers in Quality™ webinar series.

We look forward to receiving your submissions by May 19, 2017. Questions related to the Proven Practices Collection can be directed to PioneersInQuality@jointcommission.org.
