As the largest healthcare payers in the U.S., the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) are holding hospitals more and more accountable for the level of quality care provided. These hospital quality initiatives can impact your bottom line.

Whether your hospital is participating in a pay-for-reporting or pay-for-performance program, having an effective communication platform can help you reach your quality goals, particularly with time-sensitive care and procedures.

For example, with CMS’ outpatient reporting program, Pulsara can help you meet and improve upon the following measure requirements associated with emergency department (ED) care:

  • Fibrinolytic Therapy Received Within 30 Minutes of ED Arrival
  • Median Time to Transfer to Another Facility for Acute Coronary Intervention
  • Median Time to ECG
  • Median Time from ED Arrival to ED Departure for Discharged ED Patients
  • Head CT or MRI Scan Results for Acute Ischemic Stroke or Hemorrhagic Stroke who Received Head CT or MRI Scan Interpretation Within 45 minutes of ED Arrival*

And for CMS’ inpatient reporting program, Pulsara can help you with the following measures associated with time-sensitive events:

  • Primary Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) Received Within 90 Minutes of Hospital Arrival
  • Median Time from ED Arrival to ED Departure for Admitted ED Patients
  • Admit Decision Time to ED Departure Time for Admitted Patients
  • Sepsis: Severe Sepsis and Septic Shock: Management (Composite Measure)*
