Guidance for reporting eCQMs with QDM data types allowing either relevantDatetime or relevantPeriod attributes for the 2021 reporting/performance period

      For all eCQMs where QDM data types support both relevantDatetime and relevantPeriod attributes, the Cypress, QualityNet, and The Joint Commission systems will allow submitters to submit data either as relevantDatetime (effectiveTime/@value) or relevantPeriod (effectiveTime/low and effectiveTime/high) in a QRDA I file.

      For example, for CMS129v10, even though the measure specification uses relevantPeriod for ["Procedure, Performed": "Prostate Cancer Treatment"], submitters may submit the timing of this data element either as relevantDatetime or relevantPeriod in QRDA I.

      For purposes of hospital measure calculation:
      1. If a relevantDatetime is reported, it will be converted to a relevantPeriod
      2. When a relevantPeriod is reported and a relevantDatetime is needed for evaluation, the low value will be used unless not provided, then the high time will be used

    Description

      As specified in QDM 5.5, several QDM data types, such as “Procedure, Performed”, support either relevantDatetime or relevantPeriod timing attributes. Issues have been raised through ONC Jira projects in regards to varying use of relevantDatetime and relevantPeriod in eCQMs for these QDM data types.

       

      Example:

      CMS129v10:

      • ["Procedure, Performed": "Prostate Cancer Treatment"] uses relevantPeriod
      • ["Procedure, Performed": "Cancer staging (tumor staging)"] uses relevantDatetime

       

      Submitters are looking for guidance for reporting these affected data elements in QRDA I.
