The National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization has released their newsletter for March 2018. It’s packed full of great info.
Here are a few highlights:

  • HQRP Webinar from CMS
    CMS announced that they will facilitate a hospice quality reporting webinar on March 27, 2018 from 1:30 – 3:00 p.m. EST. Find details in the NHPCO Quality Alert.
  • Hospice Provider Preview Reports: Review Your Data!
    Hospice providers are strongly encouraged to review their Hospice Item Set quality measure results from Quarter 3, 2016 to Quarter 2, 2017 and their facility-level CAHPS® survey results from Quarter 3, 2015 to Quarter 2, 2017. The 30-day review period that providers have to review their HIS and CAHPS® results began on March 1, 2018 and ends on March 30, 2018.
