CMS to Hold Webinar on Home Health Pre-Implementation Performance Report to Prepare for Expanded HHVBP

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) will be holding a live webinar, including a question and answer (Q&A) session, for home health agencies (HHAs) on the Pre-Implementation Performance Report (PIPR) on Thurs., Nov. 17th at 11 a.m. ET. Click here to register.

CMS issued the November 2022 PIPR to all active HHAs in preparation for the Expanded Home Health Value-Based Purchasing (HHVBP) Model implementation in 2023. It is now available to download from the Internet Quality Improvement and Evaluation System (iQIES)The PIPRs provide HHAs with data on their quality measure performance used in the Expanded HHVBP Model, with comparison to HHAs nationally within peer cohorts. The PIPRs provide a preview of where each HHA’s performance falls in regard to the new baseline year of Calendar Year (CY) 2022, which was finalized in the CY 2023 Home Health Prospective Payment System final rule.

This new information will be invaluable in advance of the release of the first Interim Performance Reports (IPRs) in July 2023. Instructions on how to access the PIPRs are available hereAdditionally, to assist HHAs in understanding the purpose, content, and use of the PIPRs, the HHVBP Technical Assistance (TA) team created an on-demand video and downloadable resource, “Introduction to the Pre-Implementation Performance Report (PIPR),” which is now available on the Expanded HHVBP Model webpage, under Model Reports.

Shortly after the live event, a recording and transcript will be available on the Expanded HHVBP Model webpage.
