Quality gaps refer to the difference between the current level of healthcare provided and the optimal level of healthcare that should be provided. These gaps can occur in various areas of healthcare, including access to care, preventive care, chronic disease management, and end-of-life care. Quality gaps can result from a variety of factors, including lack of access to care, lack of patient education, lack of appropriate care coordination, and lack of resources. Identifying and addressing quality gaps is an important aspect of healthcare quality improvement, as they can lead to poor health outcomes, increased healthcare costs, and decreased patient satisfaction.
Vim Quality Gaps embeds care opportunities into existing EHR encounter workflows, putting this key piece of value-based care data in the right place at the right time and automating in-EHR workflows to help address certain types of gaps. This reduces manual work for provider teams, enables bidirectional data capture from the point of care, and drives improved performance on quality score performance.
