From CMS: Earlier last week, Hospice providers were notified via the QIES Technical Support Office (QTSO) website that updates are being made to the Hospice-Level and Hospice Patient Stay-Level Quality Measure reports within the Certification and Survey Provider Enhanced Reports (CASPER) application, and that the reports were anticipated to be available on February 6, 2018. The reports will be made available soon. These reports will contain the new NQF #3235 Hospice and Palliative Care Composite Process Measure – Comprehensive Assessment at Admission. Section 4 of the CASPER Reporting Hospice Provider User’s Guide will be updated to reflect the changes in these reports.
