First Quarter Reporting due April 14th
March 20, 2017
Written by Kristen Schuster, Practice Facilitator
Well, we all have made it! The end of first quarter but Q1 reporting is quickly approaching. Before we get in to the meat of the post I want to put minds at ease and assure you that you do not need to report eCQMs quarterly. These are reported annually. So, what do practices need to report?
Care delivery reports are done quarterly and focus on the CPC+ “drivers”; access and continuity, targeted care management, comprehensiveness and coordination, patient and caregiver engagements, and planned care and population health.
The intent of these care delivery reports is to monitor a practice’s progress over time. For Care Delivery Reporting, you will answer a list of questions for each driver. You don’t need to have positive answers or answers for every question. Answer them based on the progress the practice is making in the program.
Requirements for the 1st Quarter Reporting:
- Care Delivery Reporting data to be entered into the CMS Practice Portal for each organization
- Q1 reporting period 1/1/2017-3/31/2017
- Q 1 reporting due by April 14th(If extensions are needed please contact me)
