THE ULTIMATE REGULATORY REPORTING KIT

CMS and The Joint Commission have been saying for a while that they are aligning the two programs to make it easier for hospitals to report their eCQM and chart-abstracted measure data to both organizations. So why is it so hard to find the information that you need for both programs in a consistent manner?

We understand. That’s why Medisolv put together our Ultimate Regulatory Requirements Kit. We scoured through multiple CMS and Joint Commission documents to standardize and simplify the requirements for you.

This bundle includes:
