Hospices have until April 13 to preview the following two hospice reports before they go on public display in May:
- Hospice provider preview report: Review Hospice Item Set (HIS) quality measure results from the third quarter of 2018 to the second quarter of 2019; and
- Hospice Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) provider preview report: Review facility-level CAHPS survey results from the third quarter of 2017 to the second quarter of 2019.
These are available in providers’ Certification and Survey Provider Enhanced Reports (CASPER) non-validation reports folders.
Hospices can request the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to conduct a review it they believe the denominator or other HIS quality metric is inaccurate or if there are errors in the results from the CAHPS survey data.
