Hybrid Hospital-Wide Readmission*

Last updated: February 19, 2018

Measure Description:

This logic is intended to extract electronic clinical data. It is designed to extract the first captured set of vital signs and basic laboratory results obtained on adult Medicare fee-for-service patients admitted to acute care short stay hospitals. These data will be linked with administrative claims data to risk-adjust hospital-level hybrid outcome measures. This is not an electronic clinical quality measure and this logic will not produce measure results. Instead it will produce a file containing the data that CMS will use to risk adjust the hybrid HWR measure.
