CMS Seeks Hospice Input on Strengths, Weaknesses, Impact of HQRP
September 6, 2013 11:01 AM
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is reaching out to hospice providers seeking input on implementation of the Hospice Quality Reporting Program (HQRP). The HQRP was established under Section 3004 of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Health Care Innovation Services (HCIS) - a CMS contractor - is looking for providers who will voluntarily participate in a brief interview.
The interview is intended to help CMS better understand the strengths, weaknesses, priorities and burdens associated with the HQRP, how providers ensure the accuracy of submitted data, how the HQRP has impacted patient services and outcomes, and what CMS can do to improve the program and processes in the future.
The information gathered through this collaborative process will be valuable to CMS in the development of the quality-reporting program.
Interviews will be conducted over the telephone. Information provided in any reports or summaries will not be linked to a particular provider.
