Hospice Quality Measure Reports Unavailable

Apr 13, 2018

Hospices were notified via email on 03/13/2018 and 03/16/2018 of an issue affecting the Hospice-Level and Hospice Patient Stay-Level Quality Measure (QM) reports available via the Hospice Quality Reporting Program category in the CASPER Reporting application. As identified in those emails, stays are 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 falls within the requested reporting period, regardless of the discharge date. Therefore, any report requested on or after 02/14/2018 includes patient stays with discharge dates that fall after the requested reporting period end date. The Hospice-Level and Hospice Patient Stay-Level Quality Measure (QM) reports in the CASPER Reporting application will be unavailable beginning Monday, 04/16/2018, while the issue is corrected and the data for the new Comprehensive Assessment at Admission measure is recalculated. Hospices will be notified once the reports are available again. Once corrected, only stays with discharge dates that fall within the requested reporting period, including stays for the new NQF #3235 Hospice and Palliative Care Composite Process Measure - Comprehensive Assessment at Admission measure, will be included in the report.
