A Discussion of Future Hospice Quality Reporting Measures

Description:

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is considering a new claims-based composite quality measure concept, the Hospice Care Index (HCI), to be included in the Hospice Quality Reporting Program(HQRP) and publicly reported on Hospice Compare. The intent of the HCI is to capture many aspects of hospice care through claims-based data, identify indicators based on caregiver and provider feedback and align the index with family and caregiver perspectives from the CAHPS Hospice Survey.

This webinar will provide an overview of the measure concept and discuss various points of consideration for the measure. There will be ample time for participants to ask questions and provide feedback.

Faculty: 

  • Theresa Forster, VP Hospice Policy & Programs, NAHC
  • Katie Wehri, Director, Home Care & Hospice Regulatory Affairs, NAHC
