CHA has issued its federal quality measure inventory to reflect the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) annual rulemaking for federal fiscal and calendar years 2021. Notably, due to the COVID-19 public health emergency, CMS finalized limited changes to federal quality reporting requirements.  

The Excel workbook lists quality measures required for federal public reporting and performance-based programs for hospitals and other post-acute care providers. The file includes a table showing measures that are duplicated across federal reporting programs, as well as a tab for each individual federal program, including inpatient quality reporting, outpatient quality reporting, value-based purchasing, readmissions reduction, hospital acquired condition penalty, meaningful use, inpatient psychiatric facility quality reporting, prospective payment system-exempt cancer hospital quality reporting, ambulatory surgical center quality reporting, and accountable care organizations.  

The Excel workbook also includes post-acute care quality reporting programs, including inpatient rehabilitation facility, long-term care, home health, and skilled-nursing facility.
