  • 1. RQRS A NEW STANDARD AND EVOLVING PRACTICE www.carecommunications.com 1.800.458.3544 1
  • 2. STANDARD 5.2 • The RQRS standard will be effective on January 1, 2014, and will be valid for commendation only, and will be part of the Outstanding Achievement Award criteria beginning in 2014. The COC Source, May 31, 2013 www.carecommunications.com 1.800.458.3544 2
  • 3. STANDARD 5.2 Rapid Quality Reporting System (RQRS) Participation • From initial enrollment and throughout the three-year accreditation period, the program participates in RQRS, submits all eligible cases for all valid performance measures, and adheres to RQRS terms and conditions. www.carecommunications.com 1.800.458.3544 3
  • 4. STANDARD 5.2 Rapid Quality Reporting System (RQRS) Participation • Programs that are not eligible for RQRS, including new programs undergoing initial survey for accreditation, are exempt from the standard. • This standard is excluded from the Outstanding Achievement Award (OAA) criteria for programs that are not eligible for RQRS participation. www.carecommunications.com 1.800.458.3544 4
  • 5. REQUIREMENTS FOR PARTICIPATION • Facility must be an accredited cancer program through the ACoS CoC • Hospital Registrar, Cancer Liaison Physician, Cancer Committee Chairperson and Cancer Program Administrator must all agree to participate, register, have access to COC Datalinks and provide up-to-date e-mail contact information www.carecommunications.com 1.800.458.3544 5

  • 7. COST OF PARTICIPATION • There are no additional fees to participate in this program • Human resource is the main expense of this program www.carecommunications.com 1.800.458.3544 7
  • 8. HUMAN / STAFF RESOURCES • As reported by Daniel P McKellar MD, FACS, Chair of the Commission on Cancer at 2013 Survey Savvy • Based on a RQRS caseload of 161 cases a year, an increase of workload approximately equal to 0.7 abstract per day can be expected • Upon surveying users, over 50% reported less than 6 hour increase per week www.carecommunications.com 1.800.458.3544 8
  • 9. HUMAN / STAFF RESOURCES NOTE: This is based on the initial 6 quality measures (3 breast, 2 colon, 1 rectal) www.carecommunications.com 1.800.458.3544 9
  • 10. BENEFITS OF PARTICIPATION • Commendation for Standard 5.2 • Reports from NCDB/RQRS on cases that fall out of compliance with CP3R • Ability to “catch” patients before they fall through the cracks – Delay/Lack of referral – Delay/Lack of treatment www.carecommunications.com 1.800.458.3544 10
  • 11. FUTURE OF RQRS • 2013: Three (3) new breast measures will be added and the 1 rectal measure will be revised in CP3R program and will be reported in RQRS • 2014: Four (4) lung measures, 2 gastric measures and 1 esophageal measure will be added to CP3R and will be reported in RQRS • Minimally, this would mean 3 new sites would be reported via RQRS www.carecommunications.com 1.800.458.3544 11
  • 12. FUTURE OF RQRS • Additional measures being evaluated for CP3R include ovarian, endometrial, cervical, G/U, melanoma, sarcoma, and pediatric oncology • This has the potential of 25 quality measures being reported via RQRS www.carecommunications.com 1.800.458.3544 12
  • 13. FUTURE OF RQRS • Minimally, this would mean 7 new sites would be reported via RQRS • This would substantially increase the staff resources needed to participate in RQRS www.carecommunications.com 1.800.458.3544 13
  • 14. FUTURE OF RQRS Dr. McKellar also reported: “Possibly move towards requiring RQRS for all cancer programs in the future” - Update on the Rapid Quality Reporting System, Survey Savvy 2013 www.carecommunications.com 1.800.458.3544 14
