Transitions from Hospice Care, Followed by Death or Acute Care, Draft Measure Development for Hospice QRP: Public Comment Period Ends April 25

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has contracted with RTI International to develop claims based quality measures for the Hospice Quality Reporting Program (HQRP). We seek to supplement the existing HQRP measure set, which includes quality measures based on the Hospice Item Set (HIS) and the Hospice Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS®), with measures that address additional identified gaps in hospice quality measurement without increasing burden to providers.

The call for public comment period closes on April 25, 2018.
