Step 2 for Hospital Reporting Image

A specific person at your hospital should have the assigned accountability for reporting IQR and OQR data. 

Make sure that these staff are familiar with the reporting deadlines and have a plan for coverage when vacations or medical leave occur near key deadlines.

Please notify Qualis Health whenever your hospital's key contact for data reporting changes.

QualityNet registration

Important correspondence, updates, and other CMS notices regarding the IQR and OQR programs are posted to the QualityNet site. On an ongoing basis, you will want to assure that your staff have the appropriate accounts and permissions in QualityNet.  For a QualityNet account to remain active, the account must be logged into on a regular basis.

When an employee leaves your hospital, delete his/her QualityNet account.  (As long as the account is active, the former employee will have access to your hospital’s data.)

Contact Paula Parsons for assistance in adding, deleting, or troubleshooting your hospital's QualityNet user accounts.
