The Hospital Outpatient Quality Reporting (OQR) Program is a quality data-reporting program implemented by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) for outpatient hospital services. Under this program, hospitals report data using standardized measures of care to receive the full update to their Outpatient Prospective Payment System (OPPS) payment rate. Modeled after the Hospital Inpatient Quality Reporting Program, the Hospital OQR Program became effective for payments beginning in calendar year (CY) 2009.
