Describe the following:
Are they process or outcome measures?
What is the electronic capture and submission method?
Are they considered high priority by CMS? Do you agree with that categorization?
Can the measure be improved (e.g., are they described as yes/no and percentage of population because the clinical measure is unstructured data?)
Is the measure appropriate to have as a federal or statewide reporting requirement?
Note – (3-4 pages). APA format and cite the references. Please follow the Rubric for Assignment 2 that I have attached for you. Thank you so much.
