Last chance: Register for Oct. 12 PIQ webinar on 2024 ORYX performance measurement requirements
New ORYX performance measurement requirements are effective Jan. 1, 2024.
A free, 90-minute Pioneers in Quality (PIQ) webinar, which offers 1.5 Continuing Education (CE) credits, will feature Joint Commission staff addressing these new requirements for chart-abstracted measures and electronic clinical quality measures (eCQMs) for accredited hospitals and critical access hospitals.
The webinar also will explain ORYX policy requirements effective in 2024 and highlight The Joint Commission’s measurement website resources that are available, such as a measures list, high-level submission deadlines, measure specifications, FAQs, quality measurement webinars and videos.
Staff also will describe two new requirements:
- Effective Jan. 1, 2024, hospitals and critical access hospitals with ORYX performance measurement requirements may receive a Denial of Accreditation if they fail to meet ORYX performance measure reporting requirements for two consecutive years in the absence of receipt of an approved extenuating circumstance request from The Joint Commission.
- Acute care hospitals and critical access hospitals will be required to join The Joint Commission National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) Group. Information on the process to join The Joint Commission NSHN group will be distributed during late 2023 and early 2024.
