Key Updates to 2019 ORYX Requirements for Hospitalsby Joint Commission Resources Quality and Safety Network on 02/19/19
The Joint Commission made key updates to the 2019 ORYX® Performance Measure reporting requirements effective January 1, 2019. These updates, as communicated to accredited hospitals in September and November 2018, will affect critical access hospitals, freestanding psychiatric hospitals, and hospitals.
The 2019 ORYX Performance Measure reporting requirements have changed in three ways:
- ORYX measure selection requirements
- Utilization of the direct data submission platform
- Simplified annual ORYX fee
