Hospice Quality Measure Reports Available

Apr 17, 2018

Hospices were notified on 04/13/2018 that the Hospice-Level and Hospice Patient Stay-Level Quality Measure (QM) reports would be unavailable in the CASPER Reporting application while corrections were being made. Stays were mistakenly being included in the report for the newly added NQF #3235 Hospice and Palliative Care Composite Process Measure - Comprehensive Assessment at Admission when the admission date for the stay fell within the requested reporting period, regardless of the discharge date. Therefore, any report requested on or after 02/14/2018 included patient stays with discharge dates that fell after the requested reporting period end date.

Please be advised that this issue has been resolved and the Hospice-Level and Hospice Patient Stay-Level Quality Measure (QM) Reports are once again available. The data for the new NQF #3235 Hospice and Palliative Care Composite Process Measure - Comprehensive Assessment at Admission measure (NQF #3235) has been recalculated so that only stays where the discharge date falls within the requested reporting period are included in the report. If the discharge record for a stay is missing, the patient stay is included in the report if the admission date falls within the requested reporting period.

If you have questions concerning this information, please contact the QTSO Help Desk at help@qtso.com or 1 (877) 201-4721.
