CMS Extends Electronic Quality Reporting Deadlines

Eligible hospitals now have until Dec. 31 to submit select electronic clinical quality measure (eCQM) data for the Inpatient Quality Reporting (IQR) Program and the Medicare Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Program. Hospitals should submit data through the QualityNet Secure Portal to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) for these programs.

The deadline extension for eCQM data submission will not impact the Feb. 29, 2016, deadline for hospitals to attest meaningful use of an EHR under the Medicare EHR Incentive Program.

Contact Director of Policy Erin O’Malley at eomalley@essentialhospitals.org or 202.585.0127 with questions.
