CHA has updated its list of federal quality measures required for public reporting and performance-based programs for hospitals and other post-acute care providers.

The matrix 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 quality reporting programs.

The information is compiled from various sources, including Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services final rules and the National Quality Forum. Questions and comments about information in the matrix should be directed to Megan Howard at
