what we do

Measuring performance is the heart of the improvement process, and quality measures are the tools we rely on to track and measure the quality of healthcare services.

Telligen is a leading authority in this field, generating more than 90 electronic clinical quality measures (eCQMs) for use in provider incentive programs and offering broad support services to assist health care organizations in collecting, interpreting and reporting their data. Our support and subject-matter expertise guides clients through the entire measure development process — from inception and implementation, to obtaining national endorsement. In terms of reporting, we provide technical assistance and troubleshooting each step of the way to ensure clients can report in a timely and accurate manner to produce actionable data and ensure compliance.

Our quality measurement and reporting expertise helps:

  • Payers direct financial rewards or penalties to providers based on performance
  • Providers report data according to industry standards in a timely and compliant fashion
  • Providers implement clinical practice guidelines for preventive care and patient safety
  • Patients select the right provider or care facility
  • Policymakers set the course for future healthcare payment and delivery reforms
