Hospice Quality Reporting Program Dec. 13: CMS

If you’re interested in improving your hospice’s quality reporting, the December 13 webinar, “Update to Public reporting in Fiscal Year 2019: Hospice Comprehensive Assessment Measure and Data Correction Deadlines” is just right for you.

Hospice Webinar

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will host the two-part webinar covering two different topics for hospice providers. Part One of the training will focus on the Hospice and Palliative Care Composite Process Measure – Comprehensive Assessment at Admission (NQF #3235), including the background of this measure, how this measure is calculated, and how providers can use their Certification and Survey Provider Enhanced Reporting Quality Measure Reports (CASPER QM Reports) to understand their hospice’s performance on this measure.

Part Two will focus on a review of the 4.5 Month Data Correction Deadline for Public Reporting policy update that was finalized in the FY 2019 Hospice Wage Index and Payment Rate Update and Hospice Quality Reporting Requirements final rule (83 FR 38622, see pages 38638-38640), including explaining how this new policy change will be implemented and the implications of this new policy.

Register early for this 90-minute webinar, which starts at 1 p.m. eastern time. CMS presenters and subject matter experts will conduct the workshop.
