Managing eCQM Reporting Through a System EHR Transition

12:00pm - 1:00pm Thursday, March 8
Las Vegas - Venetian Convention Center
Palazzo G

Description

As hospitals have merged or acquired other hospitals, a complex ecosystem of healthcare technology has emerged. The variety and complexity of information systems has made it difficult to gain the synergies desired by these strategic combinations of hospitals and other healthcare entities. Not only does this create difficult, if not impossible, interoperability within the organization, it also provides significant challenges to manage regulatory measures across the entire system. This session will showcase the challenges of reporting electronic clinical quality measures (eCQMs) across 10 hospitals while the hospitals were on two different EHRs. The session will also describe the challenges of continuing to report eCQMs once a new, single EHR was selected and a rolling (12-month) implementation plan was executed. Finally, this session will highlight the solution BJC selected to address these challenges and lessons learned.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Describe the challenges associated with managing electronic clinical quality measures (CQMs) across multiple electronic health record (EHR) platforms
  • List the alternatives for eCQM reporting while transitioning to a new EHR platform
  • Explain the challenges of eCQM reporting while transitioning to a new EHR platform
