Posted on Monday, February 24, 2020 12:21 PM
CMS is offering a web-based training to take providers through the changes to the Quality Reporting Programs (QRPs) for the following post-acute care settings along with an overview of existing and upcoming training activities designed to support providers in successfully complying with associated reporting requirements:
- Home Health
- Inpatient Rehabilitation Facility (IRF)
- Long-Term Care Hospital (LTCH)
- Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF)
The training provides overview of the quality reporting program measures that are part of the IMPACT Act. Five content sections are included other than introduction and closing sections, which home health providers will find helpful. There are informative lessons on the history of the IMPACT Act and details of the SPADES (Standardized Patient Assessment Data Elements) including a matrix of upcoming SPADE changes for the post-acute care (PAC) settings above.
“The trainings are web based and include a couple of videos as well as slide-type presentations. CMS’ objectives for the training include:
- Demonstrate how the quality measures used in the Home Health, IRF, LTCH, and SNF QRPs tie to CMS’ Meaningful Measures Initiative;
- Provide a detailed list of data elements that have already been incorporated into the post-acute care QRPs along with those being implemented in the IRF, LTCH, and SNF care settings on October 1, 2020, and the Home Health care setting on January 1, 2021;
- Provide links to training resources to support providers in implementing existing reporting requirements associated with the QRPs; and
- Offer a preview of upcoming training activities to support the implementation of new reporting requirements, including dates, so that providers can begin to plan to incorporate these important training events into their busy schedules.”
