Five reasons to use CareDiscovery Quality Measure

Flexible and reliable reporting

IBM CareDiscovery® Quality Measures gives you a timely snapshot of performance on individual measures – down to the patient and physician level. It streamlines your team’s workflow by allowing you to customize your abstraction worklist according to measure set, discharge data or completion status. Near-time uploads allow you to upload data at any time

Manage cases while patients are still in-house

The Concurrent Abstraction module lets you abstract and manage cases prior to a patient discharge. Providers can improve quality of care – and increase patient satisfaction. You can streamline care management by documenting clinical information from medical records and analyzing the care currently being provided. Quality oversight committees, physicians and nursing staff get timely feedback – leading to process improvement throughout the facility as care happens.

Save time with electronic reconciliation

Concurrent Abstraction also enables reconciliation with final billed data, to eliminate double-entry of data and save much-needed time. Once your final billed data are uploaded into Care Discovery Quality Measures, the Concurrent Abstraction tool combines abstracted information with the final billed data, allowing the user to do a final review before submission. This simultaneous quality-check improves accuracy and saves time spent re-entering data.

Gain greater efficiency and accuracy to your reporting

CareDiscovery Quality Measures offers direct editing of administrative fields, detailed error reports, near-time reporting, comprehensive benchmarks and episode-level error reporting. Efficient and reliable reporting to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) helps you secure your performance-based reimbursement. It ensures that your final data complies with regulatory reporting for final submission.
