What do the words “eCQM data validation” mean to you? Let’s suppose that you’ve gone through the process of implementing eCQMs. Now what? And yes, we should start with a big “congratulations” if you have made it that far. Implementing eCQMs is a big project by itself. But now, what’s your plan? Do you have a team that’s ready to jump in and analyze your eCQM results and address any gaps in performance? Or was your plan to just submit your eCQMs to the required regulatory programs and be done with it?
Well, you know where we are going with this. In today’s world of ever-changing regulations tied to Medicare reimbursements, it’s better that you begin the process of validating your eCQM data now. That way, when CMS sets eCQM thresholds and then publishes those results on Hospital Compare, your hospital will be ready with accurate eCQM data.
This week, we reveal the tools that our most successful hospitals use to validate their eCQM data.
