CMS Web Interface: Data Irregularities


CMS Web Interface
Data Irregularities. Review Data Irregularities. Your team can use the Data Irregularities
report to locate items in your data that may
need additional attention. Data irregularities in the CMS Web Interface
come in two forms: 1. Measures with a zero denominator
2. Data inconsistencies If you have data irregularities to review,
the View Progress page will display a “To Do”
item at the top of the page titled “Data Irregularities” and will show you
the number of data items to review. Clicking on the “View items” link will take
you to the Data Irregularities report where
you can see all of the irregularly reported data that is currently stored in the CMS
Web Interface for your organization. You can also access the Data Irregularities
report by going to the View Reports page
in the main navigation. NOTE: If you do not have any irregularities
in your data, the box on the View Progress
page will have a green checkmark and the
“View items” link will not display. Irregularities at the measure level. In the Data Irregularities report, a list of
measures with zero denominators will
show up first if any exist in your data. Measures with a “zero denominator” are
measures for which you could not confirm
any beneficiaries. Each measure has specific denominator
requirements, so you are encouraged to
check to make sure your reported data is correct. Remember: Resolving data irregularities
is not required. You can still have a successful
submission without resolving zero denominator
irregularities. Irregularities at the beneficiary level. Next in the Data Irregularities report are
any data inconsistencies found in the
beneficiary data you reported. There are three reasons you may see data
inconsistencies in a beneficiary’s data: 1. You reported measure data for a beneficiary
who you reported as not qualified for the sample.
The measure data will be stored but not used. 2. You reported measure data for a beneficiary
who you reported as not qualified for that measure.
The measure data will be stored but not used. 3. You reported inconsistent measure data.
The measure questions you answered
contradict the measure logic. The inconsistent
measure data will be stored but not used. The Data Irregularities report shows which
data is used (indicated by a green ++ sign)
and which data is not used (indicated by a
red — sign) when there is a logical inconsistency. If you’d like to make a change to the data,
you can either manually enter changes by
clicking on the “Edit Data” links from the
Data Irregularities report, upload another
Excel file, or use a new API call. Remember: Resolving data irregularities
is not required and you can still have a
successful submission without resolving
irregularities at the beneficiary level.
