Refreshed Accelerate PI Dashboard Reports available for hospitals, critical access hospitals
Refreshed Accelerate PI™ Dashboard Reports are available for accredited hospitals and critical access hospitals to provide updated performance measurement data on a select subset of quality measures. The refreshed Interim ORYX® reports contain data through the second quarter of 2021 and the “Other” reports (CMS) contain data through the first quarter of 2021.
The Joint Commission recognizes that some organizations were not able to submit second quarter 2021 chart-abstracted ORYX® data by the Sept. 30, 2021 deadline as a result of the former platform for direct data submission being permanently shut down. A new Joint Commission Direct Data Submission Platform (DDSP) is being built to collect both chart-abstracted and eCQM data. All organizations will have an opportunity to submit/resubmit second quarter 2021 chart-abstracted data when the new DDSP is available, after which a final report of second quarter 2021 data will be posted. Additionally, The Joint Commission acknowledges accreditation and/or certification quality measure data collection, submission and rates may have been impacted during the pandemic.
Data in the reports comes from both the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Service (CMS) Compare website, as well as the ORYX® program. The dashboards, available to both Joint Commission surveyors and accredited hospitals and critical access hospitals, are intended to be a springboard for conversations on data, performance measures, and quality improvement during the survey process. Reports are located under the Resources and Tools menu below the DASH heading in Joint Commission Connect®.
