re: Kaiser Permanente Automates Quality Reporting To Joint Commission
This sort of automation could be very valuable especially with the amount of time that it saves the providers, but there are many pitfalls especially dealing with the quality of the data being collected as outlined here. I think that before CMS starts adding more requirements the current kinks need to be worked out first. There is a lot of discrepancy these days with the data and the quality of the measures being collected that need to be addressed before adding more requirements and more measures.

I like that the article ends on a note of "practicality". Government needs to do cost-benefit analysis of this kind of quality data, and that takes an honest assessment of what it will costs healthcare providers to deliver it.
