This program aims to assist rural ambulatory practices in generating stratified clinical data reports. These reports will provide a better understanding of practice performance related to meeting quality metrics, such as HEDIS measures or MIPS measures. Improvements in reporting capabilities can also assist practices in understanding their patient populations and subpopulations, allowing them to better address their needs and taking steps to close any differences between subpopulations. This program will support practices in acquiring the needed skills, and/or health information technology capability to generate these data reports. This program will support training costs, software acquisition, electronic health record upgrades, electronic health record modules, reporting software or external consultation.
