Data-Driven Patient Care: Making eCQMs Work for You

12:00pm - 1:00pm Tuesday, March 6
Las Vegas - Venetian Convention Center
Delfino 4004

Description

What does your Electronic Clinical Quality Measures (eCQMs) data tell you about the care of patient’s in your hospital? Perhaps it is a true reflection; offering you and your executive team a penetrating look at your exact Emergency Department wait times and the rate of stroke education for all of your stroke patients. Maybe. Or perhaps, you’re like most hospitals today who when asked, “what does your eCQM data tell you about your patient care?” They will respond with a resounding, “absolutely nothing.” That’s because for the past few years, many hospitals have been focused on simply setting up eCQMs to meet the minimum reporting requirements. In this session, Virginia Commonwealth University Health System shares how it created an eCQM strategy in response to the eCQM mandate from CMS that blossomed into a mature program, able to meet the eCQM Inpatient Quality Reporting (IQR) regulatory reporting requirements and most importantly, drive performance improvement activities at their hospital.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Discuss the challenges facing hospitals during implementation, validation and submission of Electronic Clinical Quality Measures (eCQMs)
  • Identify common errors when performing eCQM data validations and recognize how to locate and address gaps in performance
  • Construct a plan to improve your eCQM results as the IQR program prepares to publicly report results in the future
  • Recognize the future of quality reporting and its potential impact on your hospital
  • Identify the eCQM submission requirements for the CMS IQR program
