    March 5 and 6, 2019


    The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will be hosting a 2-day Home Heath (HH) Quality Reporting Program (QRP) in-person 'Train the Trainer' event for providers on March 5 and 6, 2019, at the Lord Baltimore Hotel, 20 W Baltimore St, Baltimore, MD 21201. This event will be open to all Home Health providers, associations, and organizations.

Topics will include Section J: Health Conditions, Section GG: Functional Abilities and Goals, the Pressure Ulcer/Injury Quality Measure (M1311), and the Drug Regimen Review Quality Measure. This training will also include an interactive session on the use of reports to identify opportunities for process improvement and utilize information contained in reports available via the Certification And Survey Provider Enhanced Reports (CASPER) system to develop quality improvement plans. A full agenda for the 2-day event is available in the Downloads section at the bottom of this webpage.
