    “Updates to Public Reporting in Fiscal Year 2019: Hospice Comprehensive Assessment Measure and Data Correction Deadlines” Webinar December 13th – Registration Open

     

    CMS will host our next training event on December 13th, 2018 from 1-2:30 PM Eastern Time. This will be a two-part webinar covering two different topics. The webinar is entitled “Updates to Public Reporting in Fiscal Year 2019: Hospice Comprehensive Assessment Measure and Data Correction Deadlines.” During Part One of the training, we 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. During Part Two of the training, we will be reviewing 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.

    It is recommended that providers familiarize themselves with the Hospice Comprehensive Assessment Measure and the new 4.5 Month Data Correction Deadline for Public Reporting prior to the training by reviewing the following two Fact Sheets currently available on the HQRP Web site:
