Joint Commission offers hospitals real-time quality metrics: 4 things to know

Thousands of hospitals nationwide now have access to real-time quality metrics from The Joint Commission, the group announced May 14.

Four things to know:

1. The Joint Commission updated its electronic clinical quality measure reporting process to offer hospitals real-time results on quality measures.

2. The new capability will be available for the 4,500 accredited hospitals nationwide with a direct data-submission platform.

3. The update allows hospitals to develop, test and roll out eCQMs in the cloud at scale. This means hospitals can continuously measure and improve quality performance without the need for additional vendor platforms.

4. The Joint Commission partnered with the healthcare software company Apervita to host a cloud platform that supports this capability.
