With a future maximum penalty of 75% of the annual payment update targeted to take effect in 2018, the EHR Incentive Program has accelerated the rate of change in the health care industry. This evolution will transform the way quality data are gathered, reported and used to improve the process of care. Ongoing additions to the regulations make it crucial to choose a partner that is well-versed in both eClinical Quality Measures (eCQM) and core measures reporting requirements.
Our team of experts draw upon decades of experience helping hospitals collect, monitor and analyze clinical quality measures data. Beginning with implementation, your Advisor helps coordinate cross-functional teams that include abstractors, account managers, IT specialists and clinical leadership, to ensure your data are correctly and efficiently mapped to optimize the EHR records. Quality Performer clients can count on the service and support of a dedicated account team.
