Updated hospice quality measure reports are now available

Provided by Home Health Line.

Hospice-level and hospice patient stay-level quality measure reports are once again available, according to a post this month on CMS’ hospice quality reporting webpage.
On April 13, hospices were alerted that the reports would be unavailable in CASPER while corrections were being made.
“Stays were mistakenly being included in the report for the newly added NQF #3235 Hospice and Palliative Care Composite Process Measure – Comprehensive Assessment at Admission when the admission date for the stay fell within the requested reporting period, regardless of the discharge date,” the April 17 post states. “Therefore, any report requested on or after 02/14/2018 included patient stays with discharge dates that fell after the requested reporting period end date.”
The issue has since been resolved. Data on the measure has been recalculated.
