Changes to Your 2017 eCQM Reporting Requirements

By Erin Heilman. Posted Aug 18, 2017 in Quality Reporting, Academy, IQR Program

Just when you thought you had it all figured out, they change their mind. If you hadn’t already heard, both CMS and The Joint Commission have changed their eCQM requirements for the 2017 reporting period. 

At the beginning of August, CMS released their 2018 IPPS final rule which lowered the eCQM requirements for the Inpatient Quality Reporting (IQR) program. Then, in mid-August, The Joint Commission followed suit, lowering the requirements for their ORYX ® initiative for quality improvement program.

In this slideshow, we review the changes made to the eCQM requirements for both CMS and The Joint Commission for your 2017 reporting period.
