  • 1. Improving  the  Clinical  Quality  Measure   Tes8ng  and  Cer8fica8on  Process     HIMSS13   March  4,  2013  
  • 2. Agenda   •  Cypress  v2  Overview   •  Feedback  on  CQM  Tes:ng  and  Cer:fica:on   •  Improvements  to  Cer:fica:on  Process   –  Jacob  Reider,  Office  of  the  Na8onal  Coordinator   for  Health  Informa8on  Technology  (ONC)   –  Saul  Kravitz,  MITRE   –  Steve  Emrick,  Na8onal  Library  of  Medicine   –  Bob  Dolin,  Lantana  Consul8ng  Group   •  Open  Discussion   2  
  • 3. Cypress  Overview   •  Meaningful  Use  (MU)  Stage  2  Clinical  Quality  Measure   (CQM)  Tes:ng  and  Cer:fica:on  Tool   –  ONC  championed  ac8vity   –  MITRE  designed  and  stewarded  free  open  source  soVware   •  Enables  repeatable  tes:ng  that  an  EHRs’  ability  to  calculate   Eligible  Professional  (EP)  CQMs,  Eligible  Hospital  (EH)  CQMs,   and  Quality  Repor:ng  Document  Architecture  (QRDA)  XML   is  accurate  and  aligned  with  MU  Stage  2   1.  Capture  and  Export     2.  Import  and  Calculate     3.  Electronic  Submission   3  
  • 4. Status  of  Cypress  and  MU  Stage  2  CQMs   •  Cypress  released  to  Authorized  Tes:ng  Labs  (ATLs)     –  V2.0.0  released  12/21/2012   –  V2.1.0  released  2/28/2013   •  ONC’s  2014  HIT  Cer:fica:on  Program  opera:onal   January  2,  2013   •  ATLs  have  successfully  cer:fied  vendors  using  the  new   CQM  tes:ng  procedure  and  Cypress   •  We  are  receiving  feedback  from  vendors  and  ATLs   –  125+  discussions  on  the  public  open  source  email  list   –  200+  issues  on  ONC’s  Jira  tool     •  We  are  improving  the  cer:fica:on  tools  and  process   based  on  your  feedback     4  
  • 5. Types  of  Feedback  Collected   •  eCQM  Logic   •  Value  Sets   •  QRDA-­‐I  Test  Data    (Capture/Export)   •  QRDA-­‐III  Test  Data  (Compute)   5  
  • 6. eCQM  Logic  Feedback  •  Many  ques:ons  regarding  proper  interpreta:on   of  MU2  eCQMs  •  Ques:ons  about  specific  eCQMs,  e.g.:   –  Measure  X  doesn’t  reflect  the  clinical  guidelines  •  General  Ques:ons,  e.g.:   –  How  to  interpret  specific  occurrence  idioms?   –  How  are  episode  of  care  eCQMs  computed?   6  
  • 7. Response  to  eCQM  Feedback   •  Short-­‐Term  Ac:ons   –  V1.1  of  eCQM  Implementa8on  Guide  on  CMS  Website   –  eCQMs  updated  as  part  of  2013  annual  update   •  Longer-­‐Term  Ac:ons   –  Publica8on  of  test  data  for  use  by  vendors  to   demonstrate  intended  behavior  for  each  measure   –  Improvements  to  logic  syntax   –  Incorpora8on  of  automated  tes8ng  in  MU3  eCQM   development  process   7  
  • 8. Value  Set  Authority  Center  (VSAC)   •  Provides  Value  Sets  that  support  MU  Stage  2  CQMs   –  Requires  UMLS  Metathesaurus  License  for  access  to  GUI  and   download  files   •  Received  lots  of  useful  feedback  and  input  from   users,  e.g.:   –  How  can  I  obtain  pre-­‐packaged  value  sets  for  all  eCQMs?   –  Can’t  you  sort  these  in  various  ways  –  CMS  ID,  QDM  category?   –  How  can  I  filter  my  search  results  by  code  system  (SNOMED  CT,   RxNorm,  etc),  in  the  user  interface?   –  How  do  I  find  out  about  updates  to  value  sets  or  the  VSAC?   8  
  • 9. Value  Set  Authority  Center  (VSAC)   Phase 2 Phase 1 Authorship Curation Delivery Consumption Integration with Web page Authoring Tool(s) to Controlled population for support value set Value Set human authorship Repository consumption API & Validation Engine Web download / Free-standing, web- API web services for based value set machine authoring tool(s) NLM consumption ONC Value Set / Measure NLM Vendors Consensus Authors Providers Org(s) Consensus Public Health Organization(s) Orgs 9
