Joint Commission contracts with Dynamic Health IT to support development of new Direct Data Submission Platform
A new Direct Data Submission Platform (DDSP) is anticipated to be available in the second half of 2022.
The Joint Commission has been working to develop in-house capability for performance measurement data submission. To accelerate this work, The Joint Commission teamed up with Dynamic Health IT (DHIT) to support the development of the new DDSP and electronic clinical quality measure (eCQM) engine.
The DDSP will enable the submission of quality measurement data directly to The Joint Commission from the approximately 3,500 accredited hospitals and critical access hospitals that are required to submit this data to meet accreditation requirements. The DDSP also will provide accredited hospitals with near real-time eCQM performance data.
DHIT will develop the platform underpinning the DDSP and apply its CQMsolution® – an Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology-certified Clinical Quality Language measure engine – to calculate, display and generate eCQMs. The Joint Commission will develop the chart-abstracted measure data collection tool and provide customer support.
