The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services is accepting comments through Jan. 22 on hospital readiness to electronically report certain patient-level data under the inpatient quality reporting program beginning with calendar year 2014 discharges. In the request for information, CMS seeks comments on EHR Incentive Program alignment and support for other quality reporting programs, plans by hospitals to participate in electronic reporting, and resources that may be used to support electronic reporting.
