In order to better serve client needs, WebChart has streamlined the concepts and efforts of quality reporting participation, in order to serve all interested entities. If, as a standard, a business would like to track ongoing quality of care initiatives, or even participate in sponsored quality programs, WebChart systems now offer a plethora of quantifiable and reportable measures, designed to track and improve overall care delivery.
The following information is intended to walk users through the basic enrollment process, which will in turn allow for ongoing tracking of relevant care-specific data, processes, and outcomes. For detailed specifications regarding the available measures, please feel free to navigate to our Measures Specifications documentation.
- Navigate to the Quick View from the sidemenu, and locate the Quality Reporting portlet.
If enrolling in a specific program, or one of the sponsored incentive programs, specify the Start/End Dates of the intended performance period. Otherwise, leave blank.
Next, from the Available Measures table, select all measures needing to be tracked, specific to the relevant program(s) opted into by the enrolled provider(s). Filter the columns, as needed.
- Once all necessary measures have been selected, click the Submit button.
As a means to assist with determining the necessary number of measures associated with a given program, or to simply guide the process of enrollment, WebChart offers links to help drive the overall process. To begin, perform the following:
Navigate to the Quick View from the sidemenu, and locate the Quality Reporting portlet.
Click the Enroll hyperlink to begin the enrollment process.
After the page loads, click the Guided Enrollment link that corresponds with the preferred program or type of tracking being performed. In this example, the guided process will walk through the steps and necessities associated with the MIPS program, offered through the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
When the page loads, Instructions will display at the top of the page. Review these instructions and continue through each section of the program, as appropriate.
Use the Opt In section to begin enrolling users, accordingly. Begin typing into the User autocomplete each name of the user(s)/provider(s) being enrolled. Multiple users/providers may be enrolled at one time.
Because MIPS requires particular reporting periods for its measure categories, be sure to specify the Period for each performance category. Understand that all users/providers specified will be enrolled for the same period and measures selected. If different measures and periods are required for different users/providers, perform this step with each user/provider, individually. In this example, two providers will be enrolled for the minimum requirements and same performance period of the MIPS program.
When all of the measures have been selected for the performance category, click the Submit button.
If there are any additional performance categories, the page will refresh and load the instructions and Opt-In block, again, as well as any measures offered under that category. Follow the provided instructions and select any and all appropriate measures. Click the Submit button when ready to continue.
Continue until all categories of the program have been updated.
Once all categories are addressed and measures are successfully selected and submitted, Status for All Providers (enrolled) will display in grid form.
The available quality reports can be found under the Quality of Care tab of the Reports module. Depending on what information is needed, select from the Provider Quality of Care Status, the Patient Quality of Care Status report, or the Quality Benchmark Report, among others.
After selecting the appropriate report, all relevant statuses for either patient encounters or providers will display. These reports provide an overall view of the collected data, as it relates to the available measures.
