CMS Seeks Volunteers for PSVA Pilot Program

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is seeking volunteers to participate in a pilot of the Pre-Submission Validation Application (PSVA), which will allow hospitals to validate quality reporting document architecture (QRDA) Category I files for electronic clinical quality measure data submission. The pilot allows hospitals to catch and correct errors before submitting files to CMS. To be eligible, a hospital must be able to create QRDA Category I files based on the HL7 Base Standard for QRDA, as well as download and install PSVA in the hospital’s environment during the pilot period. Hospitals must also attend a 30-minute information session in June; attend two 30-minute feedback sessions in July; and record and submit feedback to CMS on their PSVA use. Hospitals interested in participating in the pilot should contact Stephanie Wilson by email at Stephanie.wilson@hcqis.org. Additionally, CHA requests that hospitals intending to participate notify CHA by email at akeefe@calhospital.org.
