Canopy QM™ integrates quality, process, and outcomes
measures into your care management program. With Canopy
QM, care managers and quality improvement specialists document
and monitor Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare
Organizations (JCAHO) core measures, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid
Services (CMS) quality measures, and other quality indicators
that the hospital builds into Canopy QM.
With Canopy QM, you can create your own quality indicators
and trigger them based on ICD-9 codes. Canopy QM helps
identify patients who meet criteria for any quality or
process indicator being monitored by the hospital by flagging
or alerting the appropriate user in their Canopy work list.
By creating these flags, a care manager or quality improvement
specialist documents the measure while the patient is still
in the hospital. If the coding is done after discharge,
the appropriate user will still be flagged to document
the measure retrospectively.
