AHA today voiced support for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ proposals to remove certain quality measures from the inpatient psychiatric facility quality reporting program in fiscal year 2019, and urged the agency to remove several additional measures that do not meaningfully contribute to improved patient outcomes. “We support CMS’s commitment to its Meaningful Measures initiative, but believe additional measures can be removed,” the association wrote. “We also urge caution and continued oversight as CMS develops additional quality measures for the IPF setting.”
