Posted on Friday, March 1, 2019 9:38 PM
CMS is notifying eligible hospitals and critical access hospitals (CAHs) participating in the Hospital Inpatient Quality Reporting (IQR) Program and/or the Promoting Interoperability Program of a deadline extension. The deadline for the submission of eCQM data for the calendar year (CY) 2018 reporting period, pertaining to the fiscal year (FY) 2019 payment determination, has been extended from Thursday, February 28, 2019, to Thursday, March 14, 2019, at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time (PT). The Promoting Interoperability Program attestation deadline for eligible hospitals and CAHs has similarly been extended from Thursday, February 28, 2019, to Thursday, March 14, 2019, at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time (PT). CMS understands that some hospitals and their health information technology (IT) vendors need additional time to submit their eCQM data and attest for Medicare Promoting Interoperability Program requirements. This extension is intended to reduce reporting burden and is part of CMS’ continued commitment to ensuring successful data submissions to the Hospital IQR and Medicare Promoting Interoperability Programs. For CY 2018 reporting, all other aspects of eCQM reporting requirements remain the same.
