CMS Announces Revised HQRP User Manual, Question and Answer Document

Posted on Wednesday, January 20, 2016 3:08 PM

The “Hospice Item Set (HIS)- Based Quality Measures (QMs) for the Hospice Quality Reporting Program (HQRP) User’s Manual Version 1.00” is now available. As of January 12, 2016, this User Manual is up to date. The following information can be found in this manual:

  • The seven current HIS-based QMS in the HQRP with descriptions
  • Record selection and measure calculation methodologies for each QM
  • Logical specifications for each QM

A defined timeframe has been added to this revised manual (i.e. no more than 7 days prior to the admission date and no later than 5 days after the admission date, etc.). CMS will eventually share calculated measures with hospices and publicly report them in the near future. For the full article, click here.
