NHPCO Quality Alerts ICYMI: Recent Updates on Quality Measurement and Hospice Compare

In case you missed it, NHPCO’s Quality Team recently provided important information on updates related to the Hospice Quality Reporting User Manual and the Hospice Compare resource.

First, the Hospice Quality Reporting User Manual has been updated to include measure specifications for the Hospice and Palliative Care Composite Process Measure: Comprehensive Assessment at Admission (NQF #3235).

Also, CMS has changed the process for requesting corrections and updates to hospice provider demographic information in Hospice Compare.  Hospice Providers must now contact their Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC) for assistance if they find inaccurate data included on their Preview Report or on the Hospice Compare website.  For more information on this update, click here.
