    Description

      Good afternoon, we've run some test QRDA 1 files to evaluate how things will look in submission of CMS 529.  We noticed that the acceptable units of measurement for weight are kilograms or pounds.  Upon running the QRDA 1 files, the weight is pulling into the file as ounces.  After discussing with our EHR vendor they indicated that "I confirmed with our QRDA experts that the weight display units will not impact your QRDA submission as CMS will still allow submissions with oz as the unit." for this first submission.  

       

      Is this accurate or is this something we need to ask to be fixed for submission?
