The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has extended the data submission deadline for the fiscal year 2017 Inpatient Psychiatric Facility Quality Reporting Program measures and for the first-quarter 2016 Hospital Inpatient Quality Reporting Program elective delivery measure due to the late start of web-based data collection. Participating providers may now submit the data via the web-based measures tools at the QualityNet Secure Portal through Aug. 26 at 11:59 p.m. PT. The data submission deadline for hospital inpatient chart-abstracted clinical measures and healthcare-associated infection measures remains Aug. 15. CMS encourages providers to submit data at least two days early to allow time to address any submission issues. For further assistance, providers should contact the Outreach and Education Support Team at https://cms-ip.custhelp.com and submit any changes to their contact information using the contact change form.
