Overcoming The Challenges Of Core Measures Reporting

HTO Brenda Bartkowski, Amphion Medical Solutions

Complying with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS)/Joint Commission mandate to monitor and report core measures is a complex, time-consuming process  carrying significant implications for hospitals failing at the task. As the stakes get higher, so too does the level of difficulty involved in maintaining compliant reporting processes. The number of required measures has continued to climb, increasing the level of difficulty involved with abstracting and validating the data. Exacerbating the challenge is a limited supply of internal resources and expertise that can be dedicated to reporting to ensure processes and data definitions are current and protocols are in place to guide appropriate documentation and abstraction.
