2020 NHQI Score Sheets
We want to make sure that all are aware that the Department of Health (DOH) has posted 2020 Nursing Home Quality Initiative (NHQI) score sheets for provider review on the Health Commerce System (HCS). DOH is asking that nursing homes review the data submitted by their organization and notify the Department of any issues. Please keep in mind that this is not an opportunity to correct or update data that facilities have reported, but rather the chance to review and compare the results. The 2020 NHQI scores are largely based on data from the 2019 measurement year.
Access to the preview score sheets is available through the Healthcare Financial Data Gateway section of the HCS. Full instructions are included in a July 26th Dear Administrator Letter (DAL) available here.
DOH is asking that facilities review their score sheets and provide any feedback by Aug. 13th via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once finalized, the results will be released to nursing homes and made available publicly.
