HQA Preview Period ends February 17
February 12, 2009
Hospitals are reminded that the current Preview Period for the Hospital Quality Alliance (HQA) and Reporting Hospital Quality Data for Annual Payment Update (RHQDAPU) programs will end February 17, 2009. Preview Reports are available for participating providers and Quality Improvement Organizations (QIOs) on My QualityNet only during the Preview Period. To access the reports, you must be registered as a QualityNet user and have been assigned the QIO Clinical Data Warehouse Feedback Report role.
During the Preview Period, hospitals may have the option to suppress the public reporting of some of the information contained in the reports. Information contained in the Preview Reports will be published on the Hospital Compare website in March 2009.
