Quality Innovation Series 2021 Chapter: Digital Quality

Electronic Clinical Data System measures (ECDS), a subset of dQMs that use the HEDIS reporting standard, ease reporting burden by using data generated in the normal course of care delivery and captured in EHRs, registries, health information exchanges and other digital sources.
