CMS encourages hospice providers to preview their quality measure results

(CMS.gov) June 1, 2017

Hospice Provider Preview Reports for the Hospice Item Set (HIS) are now available.

Hospice providers are encouraged to preview their quality measure results based on Quarter 4- 2015 to Quarter 3-2016 data, prior to the inaugural release of Hospice Compare in summer 2017.

Providers have 30 days to preview their quality measure results (June 1, 2017 through June 30, 2017).

Hospice providers may continue to submit corrections to their HIS data for up to 36 months beyond the target date on a given assessment, although corrections that are made to any HIS assessment record for which the target dates fall within the applicable reporting period (initially Quarter 4- 2015 to Quarter 3-2016), will only be reflected in subsequent quarterly preview reports and Compare refreshes.

Hospice providers may request formal CMS review of their preview reports during the preview period, if they believe their quality measure results are inaccurate.
