The shift to value-based reimbursement has released a flood of changes for health systems and physician practices. One of the most complex changes is the increasing need to demonstrate quality of care using electronic Clinical Quality Measures or eCQMs.
Organizations must now begin electronically reporting these eCQMs, and while the quality of care being delivered does not change, providers are seeing substantial differences in measure performance when reporting abstracted measures versus eCQMs.
Improving eCQM performance is time and resource-intensive. Every year, the government, commercial payors, and credentialing organizations add new eCQMs, modify existing ones, and retire topped out measures. Each new set of measures requires a cycle of analysis, remediation, testing, and submission.
Encore has a dedicated eMeasure research team, customized tools, and a battle-tested approach to guide providers through the complex landscape of eMeasure reporting. We designed our eMeasure Transition solutions to help providers make the transition from abstraction to electronic reporting, and to accelerate provider understanding of eCQMs in preparation for a future of increasing electronic quality requirements.
Encore’s eMeasures Transition solution allows you to:
- Assess eCQM measure performance
