The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services and National Library of Medicine Friday published an addendum to the 2016 electronic clinical quality measure specifications. The addendum updates the ICD-10 value sets for electronic reporting of eCQMs for the 2017 performance year in the Hospital Inpatient Quality Reporting Program, Medicare Electronic Health Record Incentive Program and Merit-based Incentive Payment System. Hospitals should review the changes and revise their ICD-10 code mapping as needed to ensure their submissions comply with the updated requirements, CMS said. Clinicians also may need to review their workflows to comply with ICD-10 code additions and removals included in the addendum.
