QRDA Category I Conformance Statement Resource


The Quality Reporting Document Architecture (QRDA) Category I Conformance Statement Resource assists hospital quality measure data submitters in resolving the most recurrent file upload errors generated by the CMS data receiving system, via the Quality-Net Secure Portal, during the specified CMS reporting period. This resource provides additional explanations and reference materials beyond definitions found in the eCQM Data Receiving Systems Edits documents to resolve common errors and successfully submit quality measure data.

QRDA Category I files are submitted by hospitals to fulfill a portion of the aligned mandatory electronic clinical quality measure (eCQM) reporting requirements for the CMS Hospital Inpatient Quality Reporting (IQR) and Promoting Interoperability (PI) Programs. Hospitals reporting on eCQMs are encouraged to use this resource to support successful reporting.
