  • CMS has released a list of QUEST answers that have been revised for May and June 2007

clarifications updates data abstraction training resources
Clarifications/UpdatesData Abstraction Training Resources
  • Mock medical records (fictitious charts) have been developed for use by hospitals and Medicare Quality Improvement Organizations (QIOs) in training data abstractors.
  • Staff can use the gold standard records to practice abstracting data for submission to the QIO Clinical Warehouse.
  • Three charts are provided for each clinical topic.
clarifications updates data abstraction training resources1
Clarifications/UpdatesData Abstraction Training Resources
  • Abstractions of the mock medical records for each topic are provided as “answer keys.”
  • These abstracted cases were created using CART paper tools 
  • The abstracted cases correlate with the CMS and Joint Commission abstraction guidelines effective with 04-01-07 discharges.

topic of the day pn chest x ray element
Topic of the Day PN: Chest X-ray Element
  • Many validation mismatches have occurred
    • Due to abstractor error
    • Recommend review abstraction guidelines
    • Pay attention to ANY x-ray interpretation found in narrative documentation such as discharge summary
topic of the day pn identified pathogens
Topic of the Day PN: Identified Pathogens
  • Need NOT be a final report if you have a specified organism
    • Gram positive cocci on a gram stain is NOT an identified/ specified organism
    • Most often you will NOT have an identified pathogen within 24 hours of arrival
  • See table for further guidance and Quest references
submitted questions iv beta blockers
Submitted QuestionsIV Beta Blockers
  • Quest # 89815
    • Question: “For 4/1/07 discharges, please explain rationale of why within the ‘contraindication to beta blocker on arrival’ the statement ‘physician documentation of hold/discontinuation of IV beta blocker’ is included among the exception for clearly implied reasons for prescribing beta blocker on arrival.”
submitted questions iv beta blockers1
Submitted QuestionsIV Beta Blockers
  • Quest # 89815
    • Answer: “For 4/1/07+ discharges: This change is intended to reduce the number of false exclusions that result due to an order to hold or discontinue IV beta blockers. Orders for IV beta blockers are commonplace, and a patient is not expected to continue on chronic IV beta blockers – They will eventually need to be discontinued as the patient is transitioned to oral beta blockers.”
submitted questions readmissions
Submitted QuestionsReadmissions
  • Quest # 55302 April 2006
    • Question: “…for hospital quality measure reporting purposes, should the clinically related same day readmissions be reported as one encounter (i.e. admit date of first admission and discharge date of second admission) as required by CMS for claims submission?”
submitted questions readmissions1
Submitted QuestionsReadmissions
  • Quest # 55302
    • Answer: “CMS is aware of this issue and at this time, for abstraction purposes, we have been given the direction that these readmissions should be treated as two different episodes of care, even though for billing it is one episode of care. If one of the records is pulled for validation, the provider should only send the documentation for the dates of the record that was pulled.”
