For years, hospitals have relied on manually abstracting their quality measures to get an accurate picture of their hospital’s quality of patient care. Over the last five years or so, the attention has shifted to Electronic Clinical Quality Measures or eCQMs. This shift has intensified since 2016 when CMS, followed by The Joint Commission, started requiring eCQM data submission to successfully complete their quality reporting programs.
This left us wondering, “how do hospitals feel about their chart-abstracted measures in light of this inclusion of eCQM data?”
This week, we reveal the results of our recent survey of Medisolv hospitals and how they feel about these two types of quality measures.
