Changes effective 1/1/2015:
The Joint Commission will no longer require data collection for this measure set. The Joint Commission will be providing accredited hospitals greater flexibility in meeting ORYX® performance measure reporting requirements beginning with measure set selections for calendar year 2015. To learn more see Facts about ORYX® for Hospitals.
Hospitals that selected the HF measure set for calendar year 2014 to meet ORYX requirements must continue to submit these data via their vendor through 4th Quarter 2014 discharges.
