Hospitals participating in the Inpatient Quality Reporting and/or Promoting Interoperability Programs must submit data for at least four electronic clinical quality measures from any quarter of calendar year 2018 through the QualityNet secure portal by Feb. 28 to receive a full payment update in fiscal year 2020. The attestation deadline for the Promoting Interoperability Program also is Feb. 28. Hospitals unable to report eCQM data to the IQR program by Feb. 28 may request an extraordinary circumstances exception through April 1. Hardship exceptions for the Promoting Interoperability Program have a different request process and timeline. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services will review eCQMs with substantive changes for the 2019 performance period during a webinar tomorrow at 2 p.m. ET.
