Home Health Compare will be refreshed in October 2017 and will include the same data collection periods as the July 2017 refresh (updated July 12, 2017) for measures based on OASIS data: (https://www.medicare.gov/HomeHealthCompare/Data/Current-Data-Collection-Periods.html). The value of some OASIS-based measures may have changed slightly to reflect submission of late or corrected OASIS data. The reporting period for HH CAHPS and claims-based measures will be updated.
The OASIS data will reflect any revisions or corrections made by HHAs as of Friday, Aug 25, 2017. This change may impact individual quality measure and Quality of Patient Care Star Ratings for some agencies.
