CMS Extends Quality Reporting Deadline Until Feb. 8

Share on Facebook

CMS has delayed the deadline for collection of third-quarter 2013 data from inpatient and outpatient quality reporting measures until Feb. 8.

The data was originally due Feb. 1, but was extended due to recent severe weather in the southeastern U S.

The delay applies to inpatient population and sampling data for chart-abstracted quality measures, outpatient population and sampling data and outpatient chart-abstracted measures.

Hospitals with questions should contact their state Quality Improvement Organization or the QualityNet help desk.
