ItemNotes

Yvette Brown/Lakshmi Erigineni

  • EDI Submitter Production Load Schedule
  • NRAA
    • Submits all data daily 
    • Throttling will only be necessary if CMS opens the gateway for a limited time and the data load is too great
  • FKC submits patient & 2728 data daily, clinical &2746 data twice weekly, Reporting measures monthly, attestation annually
    • Will submit ~25 files for each 2020 clinical month (500 records) , ~500 files/400 records per file for each 2021 clinical month split by collection type
    • Will submit ~20 reporting measure files for each 2020 clinical month (500 records)
    • Plan to submit the same file load even if CMS limits the submission window, may increase frequency of submissions if necessary
    • 2020 Attestation submission will be a few hundred files
  • DaVita
    • Patient data is submitted on Monday & Tuesday
    • 2728 & 2746 are submitted manually
    • Clinical data is submitted 3 x monthly except 1st week of month (full submission then deltas, ~600 files /mo, ~6k records)
    • Reporting  measures are submitted twice monthly
    • Attestations are submitted annually
    • 2020 full clinical submission will be done once; will advise submission strategy
    • 2020 Reporting submission will be ~38-40 files (~6k patients per file)
    • 2020 Attestation submission
  • DCI
    • 2728 & 2746 are submitted manually
    • Clinical/patient data is submitted Tuesday & Friday (~270 files/200 patients)
    • Second Tuesday of month all data for previous month is submitted
    • Reporting  measures are submitted quarterly
    • Attestations are submitted annually
    • 2020 clinical submission Sept/Oct already submitted so updates will be small, Nov/Dec will be full set
    • Wants to get Clinical Compliance report from NCC more often
    • 2020 Reporting submission will be once, ~5 files/4k patients
    • 2020 Attestation submission should not be necessary; would be helpful to see a report of who submitted attestations
General discussion
  • If multiple months are open and multiple submitters submit data for the same patient, are  collisions possible?
    • Not so much two different submitters, it's the load on the system that might be at issue.
    • Collisions should not be possible because the data being submitted is different for the same patient (e.g. one submitter is submitting for January, one is submitting for November, no collision)
    • ADO can emulate normal EDI submissions to build data points via a tool
    • EDI Submitters can load test any time; ADO will need assistance from submitters and will provide notice
  • EQRS processes patients chronologically, unclear how it processes facilities (see AI)
  • Some facilities have not been sending the patient demographics data in during the clinical suspension due to EHR processes
  • Not just facility acquisitions cause this. We should rapid fire PTs changing facilities within a few months to see if it confuses EQRS; its not a facility mapping issue that concerns this.
  • 2020 submissions: assume catch-up data is Sep - Dec: can we simulate the volume of data that would be sent to Prod in Prod Preview?
    • DaVita: Yes 
    • NRAA: No (ADO can simulate NRAA files)
    • DCI: Yes
    • FKC: Yes
