GETTING STARTED WITH THE HIS
An updated version of the “Getting Started with the HIS” Fact Sheet is now available for provider download on the HIS portion of the CMS HQRP website. Providers should review this updated fact sheet for more information about Hospice Item Set (HIS) reporting requirements. Following is a link to the HIS page of the HQRP website.
The “Getting Started…” fact sheet outlines the three primary phases of HIS reporting and provides resources to help providers successfully execute each of these phases. Additionally, this fact sheet provides instructions for using Final Validation reports to verify that HIS records were successfully received and processed following submission to the QIES ASAP system. Lastly, the fact sheet includes a brief list of tips and best practices which were compiled based on feedback received from the provider community following the implementation of the HIS.
