NextGov writes: The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services is asking hospitals and electronic health record vendors for advice on how hospitals can use EHRs to electronically submit required reports measuring the quality of clinical services. In a request for information filed Friday in the Federal Register, CMS says it wants hospitals to be able to use the same certified EHR technology now required for reporting under the EHR incentive program to automatically report patient-level data under its Hospital Inpatient Quality Reporting program. The information is to be reported by hospitals for calendar year 2014 using the Quality Reporting Document Architecture category 1, CMS notes.
