How to Use Speed and Accuracy to Practice Quality Medical Reporting

recent study published in the Journal of the American Board of Family Medicine found that, as it relates to reporting cardiovascular disease quality measures, smaller practices not affiliated with a larger organization and without centralized quality improvement support reported clinical quality measures more efficiently.

While there was no difference in the final outcome and 91% of practices studied had submitted data over a 15-month period, smaller practices submitted more data early on in the study than their affiliated counterparts.

Regardless of speed, practices of all sizes, even those managed by larger affiliates, can benefit in addressing quality reporting by engaging in the use of an Electronic Health Record (EHR) solution.

In fact, a third-party service could potentially help these larger organizations untangle some of the lengthy reporting queues generated by their sheer size.

Reporting Requirements

The United States Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services outlines certain electronic clinical quality measures, or eCQMs, that “help measure and track the quality of health care services that eligible professionals, eligible hospitals, and critical access hospitals provide.”

Reporting these eCQMs helps measure many aspects of care, including:

  • Patient and Family Engagement
  • Patient Safety
  • Care Coordination
  • Population/Public Health
  • Efficient Use of Healthcare Resources
  • Clinical Process/Effectiveness

Reporting is critical to participation in CMS programs, but also helps ensure the care practices are providing is timely, effective, safe and more. In other words, eCQM reporting and other forms of quality measurement reporting help practices ensure they’re meeting their No. 1 goal – serving patients.

They include:

  • Workload reduction and the ability to allow staff to focus on other critical tasks
