Healthcare systems need to view regulatory measures in a different light. Rather than approaching them as required processes that burden the system, they should be viewed as quality improvement opportunities that lead to best practices. It helps to have a strategy to get there:
Prioritize measures that truly impact patient care
Have a line-of-sight to reimbursement
Understand measure alignment across programs
Involve the right people
Get involved in measure development upstream
The right tools also help, but a plan for success is advised for healthcare system administrators and clinicians who need to ease the reporting burden and take advantage of every measure in a positive way.
