Quality PerformerSM – Hospital eMeasures
Sound and Reliable Quality Measures Reporting Even More Critical under Meaningful Use
Is your quality team ready to meet the quality measures requirements that are part of meaningful use (MU)? A recent survey on meaningful use readiness revealed that hospitals are concerned about their readiness to handle the quality measures portion.
New Measures Necessitate New Technology
Collecting and reporting electronic clinical quality measures is required to meet meaningful use and involves collection of a total of 16 measures. While the names of many of these measures are similar to existing chart-abstracted measure sets, it's very important to note that these are NOT the same. These are new, separate measures.
Many emeasures vocabularies and value sets are not currently being utilized by hospitals to document care or capture measure elements. Capturing the new data necessary to meet the meaningful use quality measures requirement presents a considerable challenge and requires new and robust technical capabilities that incorporate the complex code sets, interface with multiple electronic sources of data, and conform to transmission standards. Hospitals are increasingly looking outside their EHRs for quality measures because of this complexity.
