Journey Towards Automated Data Abstraction of CMS Core Measures at NewYork-Presbyterian
June 24, 2015, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT
Scott W. Possley, PA-C, MPAS, Director of Quality & Patient Safety, NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. With the ever-increasing requirements for data submission to state and federal agencies, as well as voluntary registries and databases, NYP embarked on a successful and collaborative data automation project partnering with clinical and IT staff to automate manual data collection, starting with the CMS Perinatal Care Core Measures set (PCM). This session provides an overview of initial steps, how we overcame barriers within the EMR leading to standardization of provider documentation (MD, PA, NP) and nursing documentation, how we fostered buy-in from respective groups and the current state for our initial automation project. Scott also discusses NYP’s automation team’s next steps with automation beyond PCM data sets.
