Rule 2: All Meaningful Use Criteria must be Based on Valid Quality Measures
Any meaningful use criterion should be based on evidence that its implementation will lead to improvement in quality of care. In addition, tested and valid quality measures should be available so that it can be determined whether goals are actually being achieved. The AAP supports the use of quality measures that have been vetted, evaluated, and endorsed by organizations such as the National Quality Forum or the Ambulatory Care Quality Alliance.
