Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) providers were notified by CMS April 13, 2018, that the SNF QRP reports (SNF QRP Facility- and Resident-Level Quality Measure and SNF Review and Correct) would be unavailable in the CASPER Reporting application while corrections were being made. Duplicate stays were mistakenly being included in the calculations for all three reports when a correction record for a previously accepted record was accepted into the Assessment Submission and Processing (ASAP) system. Additionally, invalid Admission Dates were displaying on the SNF QRP Resident-Level Quality Measure report for the duplicated row.
The three measures affected by the issue are as follows:
- Percent of Residents or Patients with Pressure Ulcers That Are New or Worsened (Short Stay) NQF #0678
- Application of Percent of Residents Experiencing One or More Falls with Major Injury (Long Stay) NQF #0674
- Application of Percent of Long-Term Care Hospital (LTCH) Patients with an Admission and Discharge Functional Assessment and a Care Plan that Addresses Function NQF #2631
Please be advised that this issue has been resolved and the SNF QRP Facility- and Resident-Level Quality Measure and SNF Review and Correct reports are once again available in the SNF Quality Reporting Program report category in the CASPER Reporting application.
A link to the CASPER Reporting application is available on the “Welcome to the CMS QIES Systems for Providers” webpage. Data for the above measures have been recalculated to exclude the duplicated records and the correct Admission Date is displaying on the SNF QRP Resident-Level Quality Measure reports.
