On July 29, 2021 the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a final rule (CMS-1746-F) that provides updates to and finalized proposals for the fiscal year (FY) 2022 Skilled Nursing Facility Quality Reporting Program (SNF QRP). This rule includes two new finalized measures: the Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAI) Requiring Hospitalization Measure and the COVID-19 Vaccination Coverage among Healthcare Personnel (HCP) Measure as well as an update to the specifications for the Transfer of Health (TOH) Information to the Patient-Post-Acute Care Quality Measure. In addition, CMS finalized a modification to public reporting for the SNF QRP quality measures in order to accommodate the exception of 2020 Q1 and Q2 data.

The final rule went on display at the Federal Register and will be available at: https://www.federalregister.gov/public-inspection
