Hospice Quality Reporting Program Data Collection for the Fiscal Year 2021 Reporting Year began January 1, 2019

Posted on Sunday, January 27, 2019 3:33 PM

This is the first quarter for data collection for the FY2021 reporting year (data collection period 1/1/19 – 12/31/19). For Hospice Item Set (HIS) data, remember that the timeliness threshold requirement for the FY2021 reporting year and beyond is 90%. This means that to be determined compliant with HIS requirements, hospices must submit at least 90% of their HIS records on time (within 30 days of the patient’s admission or discharge date). There are no size or newness exemptions for HIS reporting. For more information on the Timeliness Compliance Threshold, please refer to the Timeliness Compliance Threshold Fact Sheet in the Downloads section of Hospice Item Set (HIS) webpage.

Hospice Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS®) data collection period for the FY2021 reporting year began on January 1, 2019 and will continue through December 31, 2019. This data collection period impacts hospice payments for FY2021. Providers who have not been participating in CAHPS® and do not qualify for an exemption should begin immediate preparations to participate in the survey.
