Hybrid measures are the wave of the future! Well if that’s true, why did only 150 hospitals submit the hybrid measure to CMS in the first year of the pilot program? Even with that low participation rate, CMS is still proposing to require submission of the Hybrid Hospital-Wide 30-day Readmission measure within the next three years and publicly reporting their results by 2025. In this presentation, you will hear from Kristen Beatson, director of electronic measures, who submitted 69 of those 150 submissions to CMS on these hospitals’ behalf. In this quick session, you will learn the basics of the hybrid measure, how to capture the measure using data elements mapped to your EHR, and how this measure is calculated and reported to CMS. This crash course on the hybrid measure will give you what you need to take back to your hospital and get started on implementing the soon-to-be-required hybrid measure. Or at the very least, you’ll sound like the smartest person in the room when your boss asks you about the hybrid measure two years from now.
