Following a February 2020 comment letter to CMS requesting that  a Hospital Harm - Pressure Injury electronic clinical quality measure (eCQM) be included in the CY 2021 Inpatient Prospective Payment System rulemaking, the Coalition sent a June follow-on communique to the Agency noting "While this measure was included in the proposed CY 2020 rulemaking, it was not included in the final CY 2020 Inpatient PPS rule nor was it included in the recent CY 2021 proposed rule.  We are disappointed that the Agency did not include these measures and hope that the Agency reconsiders placing it into the CY 2021 final rule or at the very least propose its inclusion in the CY 2022 proposed rule."
