Remember that Clinical Data entry is still paused. From our February 1, 2021 EQRS Clinical Data Deadline Suspensions post (https://nwrnbulletins.wordpress.com/2021/02/01/eqrs-clinical-data-deadline-suspensions/):
“At this time, we are suspending EQRS Clinical Data, ICH CAHPS Attestation, and Clinical Depression Screening and Follow-Up Plan submission, effective immediately. Users should not send any additional clinical data to CMS… Users must continue to use EQRS to complete tasks such as admit and discharge patients, complete CMS forms (such as the 2728, 2744, and 2746), add or update treatment summaries, and resolve notifications within a timely manner. Users should also continue to keep facilities’ information up-to-date.“
The suspension is reiterated and detailed in the May EQRS Monthly Newsletter, at https://mycrownweb.org/2021/04/may-2021-newsletter/.
