Where are the data? Accuracy of automated EHR reporting

Description: 

Over 300 independent practices transmit monthly quality reports to a data warehouse using an automated process to summarize patient information into quality measures. All practices have implemented an EHR that captures clinical information to be aggregated for population reporting, and is designed to assist providers by generating point-of-care reminders and simplify ordering and documentation.

Objective

Comparison of automated EHR-derived data with manually abstracted patient information on smoking status and cessation intervention.
