Clinical Quality Measures (CQMs) are metrics used to assess and quantify the quality of healthcare services provided to patients. These measures evaluate various aspects of clinical care, including processes, outcomes, patient experiences, and adherence to best practices. CQMs are often used in quality improvement initiatives, performance reporting, and value-based care programs to gauge the effectiveness of healthcare delivery and identify areas for improvement. They contribute to the overall assessment of healthcare quality and help healthcare organizations and providers enhance patient care and outcomes.
