The Coalition submitted comments to the proposed FY 2024 Hospital Inpatient Prospective Payment System (IPPS) highlighting support for the proposal related to the Hospital Harm – Pressure Injury electronic clinical quality measure (eCQM) included in the draft rule. "The Coalition supports and encourages the continued development of quality measures that assess wound care outcomes, as wound care clinicians should be required to report on measures that relate to the care that they deliver allowing CMS to effectively track and report the quality of that care. As such, we support the inclusion and adoption of the Hospital Harm - Pressure Injury eCQM. This measure is designed to reduce pressure injury prevalence through rate transparency utilizing complete data extraction of Electronic Health Records (EHR). We believe that pressure injury rate transparency will lead hospitals to identify and implement best practice improvements, which will reduce hospital-acquired pressure injuries," the Coalition wrote.
