Electronic Specifications

October 1, 2010

The hospital inpatient measure sets for Stroke (STK), Venous Thromboembolism (VTE) and Emergency Department (ED) have been retooled with electronic specifications for possible future consideration for the Hospital Inpatient Quality Reporting Program (formerly known as RHQDAPU).

The electronic specifications were developed through an interagency agreement with the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) to develop interoperable standards for electronic health record (EHR) capture and reporting. The specifications for the quality measures can be found at the Healthcare Information Technology Standards Panel website (https://www.hitsp.org) in the form of a Technical Note.
