CMS Posts Hospice Provider Preview Reports

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has recently made available the hospice provider preview reports as well as the Hospice Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) survey preview reports.

Hospice providers are encouraged to review their Hospice Item Set (HIS) quality measure results from Quarter 3, 2017 to Quarter 2, 2018 and their facility-level CAHPS survey results from Quarter 3, 2016 to Quarter 2, 2018.

Providers have 30 days to review their HIS and CAHPS results (March 1, 2019 through March 31, 2019) prior to the May 2019 Hospice Compare site refresh, during which this data will be publicly displayed. Providers may request CMS review if they believe there are inaccuracies in the denominator or other HIS quality metric or an error within the CAHPS Survey data results. This process is explained here on the HIS Preview Reports and Requests for CMS Review of HIS Data page and here on the Public Reporting: CAHPS Preview Reports and Requests for CMS Review of CAHPS Data page.
