The Specifications Manual for Joint Commission National Quality Core Measures includes HBIPS and PC core measure sets that are not common to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. The manual is posted on the Performance Measurement Network Q&A Forum.
- Need for information, see "Ask a New Question" on the Q & A Forum.
Note: Over time, it may be necessary to view historical or future versions of the Specification Manuals as the Specifications Manuals are based on very specific data collection time periods (i.e., based on hospital discharge dates).
The Release Notes for each version of the manual outline the changes associated with that specific release and include corrections and clarifications from the Joint Commission.
