CMS Delays Data Collection Start for 3 New Quality Measures

Colonoscopy surveillance and cataract surgery quality measures pushed back to April.

Published: January 7, 2014

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has delayed until April 1 data collection for 3 new colonoscopy surveillance and cataract surgery quality measures included in the hospital outpatient and ambulatory surgical center quality reporting programs.

The American Hospital Association requested the delay because measure specifications were not yet available. The measures will affect payments for calendar year 2016.
