Improving Quality and Safety — The Joint Commission’s Annual Report 2017

The report recognizes hospitals that have successfully leveraged electronic clinical quality measures (eCQMs) to drive quality improvement, as well as summarizes 2016 data on the traditional chart-abstracted accountability measures. The data summarized in the annual report represents 17.3 million opportunities to provide evidence-based patient care.

New data displays in the report cover the number of eCQM sets submitted for 2016, the most frequently reported eCQMs for 2016, and a summary of values for eCQMS reported in 2016.
