Medisolv Implements First COVID-19 eCQM
Columbia, MD, June 10, 2020 — COVID-19 is a highly infectious and deadly pandemic. Anecdotal evidence points to a high overall mortality rate in hospitalized patients and a very high mortality rate in ICU patients on mechanical ventilation. To assist hospitals with an ability to measure and monitor their COVID-19 mortality rate in near real-time, Medisolv today announced the release of the first COVID-19 eCQM named COVID-19 In Hospital Mortality Rate.
The measure specification uses existing national eCQM standards and is initially deployed in over 200 hospitals nationwide free of charge. A risk-adjusted version of the measure will be released later this month.
“As the pandemic gripped our country, our team was highly motivated to leverage existing Medisolv data assets, technical infrastructure, eCQM expertise and agile development processes to create something of value for our clients,” said Medisolv CEO Dr. Zahid Butt. “It was important we provided hospitals the ability to measure and monitor the mortality rate of their COVID-19 populations on an ongoing basis with data already present in their EHR without any additional manual collection burden. I am very proud of our team for authoring, testing and deploying this eCQM in record time.”
