Fall is quickly approaching, which means the deadline for 2018 eCQM reporting will be here before you know it! Is your hospital ready to report eCQMs to the Hospital Inpatient Quality Reporting (IQR) program for 2018?

If you’re still unsure about the requirements and guidelines for 2018, don’t panic—Medisolv has your back. This week, we’re offering a free download of our 2018 eCQM reporting checklist.

Let’s start with a refresher on the 2018 eCQM requirements for the IQR program:

  1. Hospitals must choose four of the available 15 eCQMs to report electronically.
  2. Hospitals must report on eCQMs for one quarter of 2018.
  3. Submission must be completed by February 28, 2019.
  4. The files your hospital submits for your 2018 data are required to use EHR technology certified to the 2014 or 2015 edition of CEHRT.
  5. Data from that period must be submitted in a QRDA I file format.

 FREE eCQM Reporting Checklist will walk you through the IQR program requirements. You’ll see, step-by-step, how to test and submit your quality data. It includes:
