CoreQUEST® was designed around the “5 Coordinates” required to ensure that the system design, build and implementation first establishes a foundation to participate in the federal incentive program, and ultimately provides the information infrastructure needed to respond for the future. The Five Coordinates are:

  • Data — Capture the required data in the prescribed standard and format that supports both ease of data entry as well as reporting and analysis
  • Content — Build with evidence-based content that supports optimal physician order entry, clinical decision support and multi-disciplinary care planning
  • Processes — Design processes to support capturing and using the data in workflows optimized by the technology
  • Decision-making — Provide governance models that focus on data decisions as well as process and technology decisions
  • Technology — Select, integrate and implement certified EHR technology; plan and design for future data analytics capabilities
