CMS Launches Electronic Quality Reporting Pilot For Hospitals – InformationWeek

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has inaugurated an electronic quality reporting pilot for hospitals participating in its Medicare electronic health record (EHR) incentive program.

According to an announcement on CMS’s QualityNet site, hospitals and critical access hospitals registered for the Medicare incentive program can begin testing their ability to send quality data directly from their EHRs to CMS. From Oct. 1 to Nov. 30, the last two months in which hospitals can attest to Meaningful Use and receive 2012 payments under the Medicare program, they can transmit this data to CMS on a “production basis” to meet the quality reporting criteria.
