Hospice Item Set Manual Revised
April 30, 2014 09:24 AM
CMS has updated the Hospice Item Set Manual. The newest version, V1.01, is not yet available for provider download, but will be posted on this website soon. There is a Change Table, however, that is available for immediate download.
The Change Table denotes the edits that were made from V1.00.0 to V1.01 of the HIS Manual. The edits are primarily clarifications and include topics such as consents for the data collection (not required), who may complete the HIS, and guidance on updating care process items. Providers should review the Change Table to ensure correct implementation of the HIS.
As reported in the April 22, 2014 edition of NAHC Report, the HIS-Admission and HIS-Discharge forms have been finalized and are available for download on the CMS HIS webpage.
The final HIS technical data specifications are also available for download.
