Data Validation - Chart-Abstracted and eCQMs


Select the validation program of interest below:

  • Chart-Abstracted Data Validation - The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) assesses the accuracy of chart-abstracted and Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAI) data submitted to the Hospital Inpatient Quality Reporting (IQR) Program through the validation process. CMS verifies on a quarterly basis that hospital-abstracted data submitted to the Clinical Warehouse and data submitted to the National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) can be reproduced by a trained abstractor using a standardized protocol.
  • eCQM Data Validation - These electronic clinical quality measures (eCQMs) were developed specifically to allow an electronic health record (EHR) system certified to the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) standards to capture, export, calculate, and report the measure data.
