Our Most Popular Content of 2017
The year 2017 brought about many changes in the healthcare space. Remember how you thought you would be reporting eight eCQMs for the entire year?
We’ve taken a look back at all of our content throughout the year and surfaced our most popular pieces of 2017.
Beginner’s Guide To MACRA EBook
Topping the list of popular downloads (far and away, might we add) is the Beginner’s Guide to MACRA eBook. This book is chock full of useful information to help you ease your way into the Quality Payment Program. People clearly wanted to learn as much as they could about the program; how it would impact their hospital and what they need to do to meet their requirements.
ECQM Preparation Checklist For 2017
Another very popular piece of content this year was our eCQM preparation checklist. FFor hospitals who are submitting eCQMs to CMS as a part of their Inpatient Quality Reporting (IQR) program requirements, this guide is for you. It highlights all of the steps you need to take to complete your eCQM reporting.
How To Submit ECQM Data To CMS And The Joint Commission [On-Demand Webinar]
If you’d like to supplement your checklist, we hosted a webinar this year about submitting eCQMs to CMS and The Joint Commission. This webinar will help you to understand, in more detail, what you must submit and how to submit the files.
ECQMs 101: Getting Started
Even though eCQMs have been around for a while now and this is not the first year that eCQMs were required as a part of the IQR program, the eCQMs 101 webinar continued to be our most popular webinar. Perhaps this is a reflection of what we are seeing as an emerging trend. The Quality department is beginning to get more involved in eCQMs. Historically this has been handled mostly by the IT department. Since eCQMs are becoming more of a focus for the Quality department, more people are interested in learning all that they can about them.
CMS Inpatient Quality Reporting Program In 2018
Rounding out the list of content for 2017 is the webinar CMS Inpatient Quality Reporting Program in 2018. TTurns out, the people who consume our content are big planners. They want to know how they should prepare for the upcoming year and they want to know this in advance of the new year. You can catch this webinar on-demand or sign up for the repeat session on January 17 at 1 pm EST.
And that’s a wrap! We hope you’ve had a chance to enjoy these educational resources either throughout the year or here at the end of the year.
