EHR Evolutionary Scale

By Erin Heilman. Posted Jan 05, 2018 in Quality Reporting, MACRA/MIPS Program, Academy, IQR Program

Has your organization evolved?

More specifically, has your organization's use of its EHR evolved? In the primal beginning of EHR use, it was generally a way for hospitals to capture transactions. Over the years, the true power of the EHR has evolved to be a much more sophisticated system, by which hospitals can catapult themselves into the Modern Age. 

So where do you fall along this EHR Evolutionary Scale? Have you advanced enough to use your EHR to help measure the quality of care at your organization? Or are you stuck in the Stone Age, as the upright ape, merely using the EHR to deliver clinical data to providers?

All hospitals fall somewhere along this spectrum, but only the most advanced can truly claim to use their EHR to measure the quality of care at their organization. Of course to do this, your system must have a way to accurately capture your Electronic Clinical Quality Measures. But it's not enough to merely capture the measures; this type of advancement requires an entire team dedicated to maintain, improve and analyze measure results. Without these elements in place, you can never hope to truly reach an advanced EHR state. 

So honestly, where do you fall? And if you aren't advanced, what will it take to move your organization to that level?

Ok, yes, I concede that the EMRAM score is a much more accurate way to measure the extent to which you use your EHR, but don't you think the monkeys are cuter?


WEBINAR:

DATA DRIVEN PATIENT CARE: USING ECQM VALIDATION FOR PERFORMANCE IMPROVEMENT

Tuesday, July 10, 2018
1 p.m. ET | 12 p.m. CT | 10 a.m. PT

What does your eCQM data tell you about your clinical documentation processes, data management and ultimately, the quality of care of patient’s in your hospital?

For the past few years, many hospitals have been focused on simply setting up eCQMs to meet the minimum reporting requirements. For most, the idea that eCQMs could accurately reflect the quality of care in a hospital setting and initiate actionable change is unimaginable.

In this free educational webinar, Medisolv will share tips from their most successful hospitals and how they improved their eCQM results to help drive performance improvement.

If you’ve already implemented eCQMs, but you aren’t sure what to do next, this webinar is for you. Meet your regulatory reporting requirements and drive performance improvement activities at your hospital.

Objectives:

  1. Review common challenges facing hospitals during eCQM data validation;
  2. Construct a plan to improve your eCQM results;
  3. Identify common errors when performing eCQM data validation and recognize how to locate and address gaps in performance;
  4. Identify the requirements for regulatory programs requiring eCQM submission.
