Virtusa / Healthcare AnalyticsToAction / CareDiscovery Quality Measures (CDQM)

Patient safety and quality of care are key drivers in healthcare reform, and organizations like The Joint Commission (TJC) have developed accreditation policies to ensure that hospitals comply with well-established safety and clinical standards. Strict submission deadlines and revisions notwithstanding, hospitals need smarter processes that optimally utilize the huge inflow of patient data while containing compliance related costs.

Virtusa helps alleviate the pains of regulatory reporting with the CareDiscovery Quality Measures (CDQM) and CareDiscovery Electronic Quality Measures (CDeQM) solution. This solution, offered in partnership with IBM, supports CMS compliance and core measure reporting requirements. It provides accurate, on-time and comprehensive records making it the tool of choice for regulatory reporting.

Our reporting solutions are designed to help hospitals report to CMS so they can receive incentives through the hospital quality reporting programs.

CareDiscovery Quality Measures (CDQM)

Manage the regulatory reporting process for compliance and accepted standards of care.

CareDiscovery Quality Measures (CDQM)

CDQM combines patient data from different sources such as patient billing systems and EHRs, to define data elements needed for abstraction of clinical quality measures. It helps hospitals achieve compliance with CMS and TJC to protect market share. Using the optional Concurrent or Expedite modules, CDQM enables hospitals to analyze health cases while patients are still in-house and care is being delivered, giving providers the opportunity to improve quality and patient outcomes for the future.

CareDiscovery Electronic Quality Measures (CDeQM)

Comply with electronic clinical quality measures (eCQM) reporting requirements for CMS and TJC submissions.

CareDiscovery Electronic Quality Measures (CDeQM)

CDeQM provides a comprehensive data-submission manual that defines the data elements needed for calculation of eCQMs. CDeQM accepts patient data from disparate EHR systems and generates actionable insights. The solution assists hospitals in understanding data element definitions, associated value sets, and the likely sources where those data elements may be available within electronic systems. It also assists in performing a gap analysis to identify data elements that are not currently available in the EHR system.

To overcome the challenges of eCQM submissions, CDeQM provides dedicated operations support to make submissions to the CMS and TJC on behalf of the hospital. Measuring and reporting eCQMs allows hospitals to deliver effective, safe, efficient, patient-centric, equitable and timely care.
