Specifications Manual for National Hospital Inpatient Quality Measures

shareslide1


The Specifications Manual for National Hospital Inpatient Quality Measures includes the measure sets: AMI, HF, PN, SCIP, CAC, VTE and STK. 

The aligned manual represents the result of efforts by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services and the Joint Commission to achieve identity among common national hospital performance measures and to share a single set of common documentation. Need more information, see "Ask a New Question" on the Q & A Forum.  

Current version 

The Release Notes for each version of the manual outline the changes associated with that specific release and include corrections and clarifications based on ongoing alignment discussions between the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services and the Joint Commission.
