Training materials from the Hospice Quality Reporting Program Webinar: From Data to Measure training, held on August 16, 2018, are now available for download.
The aim of this training is to help providers understand how CMS takes raw HIS data, calculates hospices’ performance on the HIS quality measures (or QMs) using the QM specifications, and determines publicly reported scores. Additionally, providers will learn how to interpret two QM reports in CASPER (both the Hospice-level QM Report and the Patient stay-level QM Report) to understand their hospice’s quality performance. This training is intended for advanced HIS audiences; it is recommended that providers have a basic understanding of the HIS, a working knowledge of the HIS-based QMs, and some familiarity with the QM reports to maximize benefit from this webinar.
