800 hospitals selected for FY 2013 medical record validation
May 17, 2011
The 800 Inpatient Quality Reporting (IQR) hospitals randomly selected for medical record validation for Fiscal Year (FY) 2013 payment determination have been identified and are now being notified via e-mail. The list of selected hospitals will be posted on QualityNet in approximately one week. (Hospitals not selected will not have cases validated.)
Once FY 2012 confidence interval (for First Quarter 2010, Second Quarter 2010 and Third Quarter 2010 records) is calculated, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will notify and request records for validation from hospitals that did not meet the validation requirement.
