Over the course of this year, Medisolv has provided you with many opportunities to further your education on quality reporting to CMS and The Joint Commission especially as it applies to submitting eCQMs. As we head into submission season, it's a good time to review these webinars and confirm you are ready to submit your eCQMs.
We've gathered materials that review the eCQM requirements for the CMS Inpatient Quality Reporting (IQR) program and The Joint Commission's ORYX® initiative for quality improvement. Choose from guides, an academy course and a webinar. If you haven't had a chance to explore our resources to date, take some time before the submission season is fully upon us.
