RWHC’s Electronic Clinical Quality Measures

RWHC Electronic Clinical Quality Measures

The RWHC QI Program is 2015 certified to submit Electronic Clinical Quality Measures (eCQMs) for CMS and Joint Commission for IQR and Promoting Interoperability (previously named Meaningful Use). Our technology allows hospitals to choose to meet hospital electronic clinical quality measure reporting requirements. This certification, RWHC eCQM QI Program 2015 v7 along with our current Chart Abstracted Measures Program provides an opportunity to maximize staff time, efficiency, and data accuracy while meeting your multiple quality measure submission requirements.

The RWHC eMeasures Solution can work with eligible hospitals with any:

  • EHR system or level of implementation
  • eCQM reporting for IQR and Promoting Interoperability
  • Attestation or electronic measures submission choices
  • Hospital size or designation (Critical Access or PPS) 

We provide automated tools and IT consultation that allow demographic and clinical data import to our database from many EHR systems. We also provide assistance in understanding the complex data and reporting requirements that apply to eCQMs and Core Measures programs.

RWHC has partnered the eMeasures Solution with our Core Measures Program to build a total quality reporting package tailored to your specific needs, while maximizing your incentive dollars and meeting your data submission requirements.
