CMS has mandated that the new Hybrid Hospital-Wide All-Cause Readmission measure go from voluntary to mandatory over the next several years. In fact, last year, CMS held a pilot program during which 150 hospitals submitted the hybrid measure data to CMS. Medisolv's clients made up 69 of those 150 submissions. We learned a few things during the course of those submissions and we've put together a quick start guide to get your hospital thinking about this new measure.
In this quick start guide we explain how the measure is captured in your EHR and how CMS will calculate your measure performance.
