CHA Federal Quality Measure Inventory

CHA has compiled a list of quality measures required for public reporting and performance-based programs for hospitals and other post-acute care providers. The attached 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 quality reporting, long-term care quality reporting, home health quality reporting and skilled-nursing facility quality reporting programs.

The information in the document comes from various sources, including Centers for Medicare & Medicaid final regulations and the National Quality Forum, and will be updated as new measures are added through the federal rulemaking process.
