This report: describes the processes CMS uses to ensure the accuracy & completeness (A&C) of data submitted for the APU program; analyzes the results of CMSís audit of the accuracy of data from the programís first 6 mos.; & describes processes used by 7 other org. that assess the A&C of clinical performance data.
