CMS Extends Deadline to March 14 for Hospital IQR and the Promoting Interoperability Programs

The deadline for the submission of electronic clinical quality measure (eCQM) data for the CY 2018 reporting period, pertaining to the FY 2019 payment determination, has been extended from Thursday, February 28, 2019, to Thursday, March 14, 2019, at 11:59 pm PT.

The Promoting Interoperability Program attestation deadline for eligible hospitals and critical access hospitals has similarly been extended from Thursday, February 28, 2019, to Thursday, March 14, 2019, at 11:59 pm PT.

This extension was provided by CMS because some hospitals and their vendors need additional time to submit their eCQM data and attest for Medicare Promoting Interoperability requirements.  More information is available here.
