Hospice is quickly coming into its own with the development and dissemination of quality measures. Beginning in April 2017 the Hospice Quality Reporting Program (HQRP) will expand to include a new Hospice Item Set (HIS) Composite Measure and a two-part measure related to visits in the final days of life. This involves four new items added to the HIS-Discharge which hospices must begin using on April 1, 2017. Later this year, CMS will launch a Hospice COMPARE website that will provide information to the public about each hospice program's quality scores. CMS has additional changes in mind over the coming years including a possible comprehensive patient assessment instrument.
Do you have a solid understanding of forthcoming changes and the implications they might have for the success of your hospice program? Is your organization prepared to implement the new HIS-Discharge and does your staff understand how the two new measures are calculated? This 70-minute session will provide an overview of the history of the Hospice Quality Reporting Program (HQRP), a detailed overview of the new data your hospice must collect beginning in April to be on track for the new HIS-based quality measures, and a preview of the future of the HQRP.
SPECIAL NOTE: Access to this program includes two “takeaway” toolkits:
