The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has contracted with the Yale New Haven Health Services Corporation – Center for Outcomes Research and Evaluation (CORE) to develop the Addressing Social Needs (ASN) Electronic Clinical Quality Measure (eCQM), a re-designed measure of screening for social needs (food insecurity, housing insecurity, transportation insecurity, and utility insecurity). The re-designed measure will be an eCQM evaluating hospitals on screening and follow-up on social needs of patients. The contract name is Measure & Instrument Development and Support (MIDS): Development, Reevaluation, and Implementation of Outcome/Efficiency Measures for Hospital and Eligible Clinicians, Option Period 3. The contract number is HHSM-75FCMC18D0042. As part of its measure development process, CORE requested interested parties to submit comments on the candidate or concept measures that may be suitable for this project. The primary objective of this project is to evaluate how hospitals address social needs that affect health, such as food insecurity, housing insecurity, transportation barriers, and affordability of utilities.
