Now Available - Updated Sample Files for the 2017 CMS QRDA I Implementation Guide for Hospital Quality Reporting

August 1, 2017 - 1:22pm

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has published updated sample files (Updated July 2017) for the 2017 CMS Quality Reporting Document Architecture (QRDA) Category I Implementation Guide (IG) for Hospital Quality Reporting. The sample files now address newly released guidance on proper submission of QRDA Category I files using wrappers (referred to as “Act wrappers”) to ensure correct measure calculation of specific data types. Please visit the eCQI Resource Center QRDA Space for detailed descriptions of the issue, guidance, and examples on how to properly submit Act wrapper templates. This guidance is for electronic clinical quality measure (eCQM) submissions for calendar year (CY) 2017 and QRDA Category I files only.
