I'd like to talk to others doing CMS performance measures in hospitals, esp Pneumonia.

I have been "doing" the measures. Some of them (vaccines) are really difficult because they require a complete change in culture. The other really really hard one is antibiotics w/in 4 hours. This requires a whole new way to assess patients in the ED and triage them. Hard to do on a Sat. night when we have a three-4 hr wait.
