As a reminder, the submission deadline for all ASC Quality Reporting (ASCQR) Program web-based measures is May 15, 2018. ASC-8: Influenza Vaccination Coverage among Healthcare Personnel is reported through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN). ASC-9: Endoscopy/Polyp Surveillance: Appropriate Follow-Up Interval for Normal Colonoscopy in Average Risk Patients and ASC-10: Endoscopy/Polyp Surveillance: Colonoscopy Interval for Patients with a History of Adenomatous Polyps – Avoidance of Inappropriate Use are reported via QualityNet.

This is the first year that the web-based measure reporting dates are aligned. In order to ensure you are able to meet this deadline:

• Make sure the QualityNet Security Administrator for your facility is active and you have a backup in place;
• Complete the SAMS GRID Card process, if needed;
• Verify that you have a Facility Administrator and reporting plan for the National Healthcare Safety Network;
• Accept the new NHSN Agreement to Participate and Consent by April 14, 2018, or you will not be able to submit data in NHSN;
• Download the updated Specifications Manual; and
• Check your data submission with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS) online help tools.

Please contact ASCQR Program support through the Outpatient and ASC Questions and Answers tool at https://cms-ocsq.custhelp.com, or by calling, toll-free, 866.800.8756.
