SCG is Subcontractor on HHS Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Award of Measure and Instrument Development and Support

The Center for Clinical Standards and Quality, under the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) awarded the Measure and Instrument Development and Support (MIDS) contract to several awardees. The MIDS program will promote the quality of healthcare by emphasizing major strategies for evaluating and improving care. Under multiple task orders, the contractors will assist CMS in developing, testing, refining, revising, maintaining, implementing, and publically reporting quality healthcare-specific measures.

Signature Consulting Group (SCG) is pleased to be able to apply our expertise in measurement management, meaningful use, informatics reporting, and eMeasures integration with Electronic Health Records in support of the MIDS contract and mission of CMS and the Affordable Care Act of improving the quality of care for all Americans.

The development and use of clinical quality measures remains a critical healthcare priority and the tool of choice for improving quality of care at the national, community and facility levels. The MIDS contract provides a vehicle to objectively evaluate and promote quality of care within the Federal quality reporting programs by aligning with the Measures Management Blueprint—a comprehensive and structured process for developing and maintaining evidence-based clinical quality measures (CQMs), including electronic CQMs, based on Electronic Health Records.
