Source: Home Health Line.

The new version of the Hospice Item Set (HIS) manual — V2.01 — is now available.

The manual was has “refined guidance for completing the HIS based on frequently asked questions from the Hospice Quality Help Desk,” CMS notes on the Hospice Quality Reporting Program website. “Note that no updates were made to HIS items or the HIS itself (i.e., no HIS items have been added, deleted, or changed). Instead, additional guidance based on provider feedback from the Hospice Quality Help Desk has been added to the manual to clarify HIS coding instructions.”

A change table for the manual is also available.
