Clinigence supports three levels of reporting:
- Program – The highest level in the reporting hierarchy, a program consists of a set of guidelines and rules which dictate guideline participation, goals, reporting, financial impacts, etc. Details on the programs supported by Clinigence are here.
- Guideline - A guideline consists of a set of measures which are usually but not always targeting a specific population (age or gender), specific medical condition (heart disease, diabetes) or a type of treatment (vaccinations).
- Measure – A measure is a calculation, usually a percentage but sometimes a count or period of time. Demographic and clinical rules define the details of the calculation. For example, when the calculation is a percentage there are rules that determine which patients are eligible for the denominator and rules that determine which patients in the denominator also meet the numerator criteria.
