[Slideshow] 2022 IPPS Proposed Rule: eCQM & Hybrid Measure Changes
CMS released their 2022 IPPS proposed rule and included changes to the hybrid measure and eCQM requirements.Most notably, CMS added a brand-new hybrid measure to the mix, the Hybrid Hospital-Wide All-Cause Mortality (HWM) measure.
CMS had previously released the Hybrid All-Cause Readmission (HWR) measure which is mandatory by 2023. Now, they have added this new hybrid measure, which is also mandatory by 2023.
If you didn’t plan to voluntarily submit the hybrid measure this year, you should probably reconsider. Both of these hybrid measures will be publicly reported and affect your successful completion (and payments) in the Hospital IQR program.
There were a few other changes of note which we’ve highlighted in the slideshow below.
So, there you have it. Keep in mind this is just proposed changes so they may go back and change the requirements for 2022.
We know that keeping up with these yearly regulatory changes can be overwhelming.
