The Clinical Quality Information Work Group Mission and Charter:

(Updated and Approved May 20, 2016)

The mission of the Clinical Quality Information Workgroup is to create and maintain information technology standards in support of measuring and improving health, health care and health care quality, including fostering collaboration and alignment among stakeholders addressing clinical decision support, quality measurement, outcomes, and improving clinical workflow.
