Emergency Department

June 17, 2016

The Emergency Department (ED) measure set was developed by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and has been adopted by The Joint Commission’s ORYX program in order to maintain alignment with CMS reporting requirements.   The ED measure set became available for selection by hospitals to meet their six core measure set accreditation requirement effective January 1, 2012.

The ED measure set comprises two measures and addresses all hospitalized inpatients, irrespective of their diagnosis/clinical condition. 

The ED measures can be found in the Specification Manual for National Hospital Inpatient Quality Measures. Submit your questions about ED measure specifications to the Performance Measurement Network Q&A Forum.
