CMS Updates on Full Encounter Data

Last Week, CMS posted an updated CMS Encounter Data Participant Guide. Also published was a presentation from the training sessions held by CMS in August and September.  It does not appear that the presentation was updated, although we do not know for sure. It still contains references to benchmarks for 60% submission within 60 days and 90% within 90 days.  We are still hoping that CMS will not hold us to these benchmarks.  However, Medical Groups and Hospital providers must be prepared for the possiblity that this may occur.

We will be posting these new documents on HCC University on the Full Encounter Data/ICD-10 page within the next 48 hours.
