Quality Metrics

Quality metrics are clusters of data that describe the activities of an individual or group. For practitioners, such data may relate to patients (e.g. age groups served), services (e.g. number of procedures performed), costs (e.g. billing codes), outcomes (e.g. number of return visits) or other factors.

Practitioner quality metrics offer a snapshot of healthcare practice and generate insights that contribute to clinical improvement.
