Clinical Quality Framework Pilot- The American College of Cardiology

Description
The American College of Cardiology, in collaboration with other key specialty and subspecialty societies as well as authors utilized clinical guidelines, performance measures, appropriate use criteria, and other content to improve the delivery of healthcare. The ACC Appropriate Use Criteria (AUC) for the multimodality approach to the detection and risk assessment of ischemic heart disease (Wolk MJ et al., J Am Coll Cardiol 2014;63:380–406) describes current recommendations for the selection and application of non-invasive and invasive diagnostic testing for the detection and risk assessment of stable ischemic heart disease (SIHD). Included are elements of both clinical decision support (CDS) and clinical quality measurement (CQM) that align with the pilot demonstration goals of the CQF initiative.
