The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has suspended outpatient quality measure OP-19, which is used to assess the percentage of ED patients who receive a transition record on discharge from the ED.

CMS has stated that the suspension of this measure is due to concerns with the measure specifications. The suspension is retroactive back to January 2012.

CMS has said it will not make use of data submitted for this outpatient measure until all existing concerns have been resolved.
