Hospitals now have until March 14 to submit data for the Medicare Promoting Interoperability Program (PIP) and, for the Hospital Inpatient Quality Reporting (IQR) Program, electronic clinical quality measure (eCQM) data. The submission deadline previously was Feb. 28.
Medicare-eligible hospitals and critical access hospitals must submit attestation and eCQM data through the QualityNet secure portal.
To meet IQR Program requirements, hospitals were required in calendar year 2018 to collect data for one calendar quarter on four eCQMs of their choice. Hospitals can access additional information on PIP requirements on the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services updated Promoting Interoperability Programs (PIP) website. The website includes updated 2019 program requirements for Medicare and a fiscal year 2019 Inpatient Prospective Payment System program overview fact sheet.
