Measure Development

The University of Wisconsin Quality Improvement Workbook

The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) now requires that program directors “must ensure that residents are integrated and actively participate in interdisciplinary clinical improvement and patient safety programs.” It is in that vein that the The University of Wisconsin Quality Improvement Workbook and Training Program were created. Divided into 10 sections the curriculum focuses on subjects that that broadly define the use and development of quality improvement and measurement tools.

Measure Authoring Tool (MAT)

The MAT, created under the auspices of the National Quality Forum (NQF), is a web-based tool for measure developers to create eMeasures. The MAT offers measure stewards a way to develop and maintain quality measures in a more streamlined way. Using the Quality Data Model as the structure and grammar, the MAT consistently and efficiently creates standardized eMeasures that can be used with EHRs and other clinical IT systems.
