Successful ORYX eCQM Data Transmission to The Joint Commission for 2015

By: Acmeware, Inc
DEDHAM, Mass. - Feb. 2, 2016 - PRLog -- Acmeware a leading provider of custom reporting using the MEDITECH Data Repository, has teamed with Cortland Regional Medical Center to report eMeasures for The Joint Commission in 2015.   As The Joint Commission moves towards aligning their quality measures with the CMS, Acmeware is working to streamline the collection, validation and reporting of eMeasures.

“I am excited to announce that Acmeware successfully submitted eCQM Measures (ED-1 & ED-2) to The Joint Commission (TJC) for Cortland Regional Medical Center, thus satisfying our 2015 obligation as their designated ORYX eCQM submission vendor.  This is a tremendous milestone as Acmeware is one of only a handful of vendors in the country to successfully submit eCQMs to TJC in for the 2015 year.  We are also one of only three vendors who work exclusively in the MEDITECH space to be registered with TJC, and likely the only one to have submitted in 2015.  We are on the very leading edge of TJC’s requirement to transition to electronic submission of quality reporting and in a unique position to provide this service for many MEDITECH hospitals.” Says Glen D’Abate, President of Acmeware.

After using OneView 4.1 for their EHR Meaningful Use Stage 2 reporting for fiscal year 2014, Cortland Regional Medical Center approached Acmeware to electronically report their Quality Measures (eCQM’s) to The Joint Commission for 2015.  According to Joan Skawski, Director of Quality and Risk Management, “The benefit of Electronic Clinical Quality Measures is that we can look at the whole population as opposed to a sample set. It also allows for an apples-to-apples comparison with other hospitals because it pulls data from similar fields. We wanted to submit in 2015 to gain experience before electronic submission is required and by submitting eCQMs, we can free up abstracting resources for other projects.    Ultimately, it was the people and support from Acmeware that made it happen.”

Mr. D’Abate also recognizes his team, “I am profoundly thankful to William Presley and his staff, most notably Marcie Wiginton and Phuong Pham, for the tremendous effort they put in to complete the work for this successful ORYX submission.  With everything else going on related to the CMS Final Rule changes and required updates to OneView, it is a testament to the talent, dedication, and nimbleness of our team to be able to also meet the Cortland Hospital/TJC deadline.  I am extremely thankful for everyone who contributed to this success and look forward to this opening the door for great opportunities for Acmeware in the future.”
