Quality Reporting - May 15 Deadline for all Web-Based Quality Reporting Measures
April 24, ASCA Update

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.

The CDC did announce that the deadline for submitting the online NHSN Agreement to Participate and Consent form has been extended to June 15, 2018. The consent form is accessible to only the NHSN Facility Administrator or Primary Contact user. If the consent form is not completed by the new deadline, access to NHSN will be temporarily suspended. CMS quality reporting deadlines for NHSN measure reporting are not impacted by this extension; the deadline to report on ASC-8 remains May 15, 2018.
