We told you it was coming! And it’s here. Well it’s proposed at least.
What are we talking about? CMS is proposing that next year’s eCQM performance be posted on Hospital Compare.

So, there you have it. Keep in mind this is just proposed changes so they may go back and change the requirements for 2021. CMS is requesting feedback on all their proposed IPPS changes by July 10, 2020.
