Hospital OQR Program

Welcome to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Hospital Outpatient Quality Reporting (HOQR) Program. The HOQR Program exists to promote higher quality, more efficient health care for Medicare beneficiaries through measurement. Under this program, quality data reporting requirements for care rendered in the Hospital OQR setting were implemented starting with claims submitted for services beginning in 2008.
