WEBINAR: 

Overcoming Challenges with eCQMs

July 27, 2017 

How easy was it for your hospital to submit the required four eCQMs to the CMS Inpatient Quality Reporting program this year? Well if you are like most hospitals, it might not have been a walk in the park. More like a juggling act performed while hiking up Mount Everest … in a raging snow storm. 

In this can’t miss webinar, Medisolv will share a yearly eCQM strategy that takes you from initial implementation all the way through submission to CMS. We will point out common pitfalls that many hospitals struggled with and how to overcome those problems in advance.

In this webinar you will learn:

Objectives:

  • Understanding and keeping up with the regulatory requirements and specifications;
  • Required eCQM data element mapping updates for the correct specification version;
  • Assessing and choosing the measures for submission to the IQR program;
  • Implementing changes to Clinical Workflows;
