New CHHA and LHCSA HERDS Changes Issued

Members should note that Certified Home Health Agencies (CHHAs), Hospices, and Licensed Home Care Services Agencies (LHCSAs) have new Health Emergency Response Data System (HERDS) surveys that reflect questions relating to staffing shortages, census and patient care, staff terminations, and flexibilities provided by Executive Order (EO) 4, issued by Governor Hochul on Sept. 27th.

These changes have already been made to the CHHA and Hospice HERDS. Similar changes will be implemented soon for LHCSAs. The HERDS survey is available for review here
