Existing quality measures may not be sensitive to the effects of sharing clinical data across health care providers or institutions. Our objective is to develop and validate a modified set of quality measures that is: 1) sensitive to the types of improvements in quality that health IT with HIE may contribute to ambulatory care and 2) electronically retrievable from electronic health records (EHRs) or other electronic sources.
