Update to Public Reporting of the Hospice Visits when Death is Imminent Measure Pair

Posted on Friday, April 5, 2019 1:37 PM

The Hospice Visits when Death is Imminent measure pair assess whether a hospice patient and caregiver’s needs were addressed by hospice staff in the last three and seven days of life. The three-day Hospice Visits when Death is Imminent measure will be publicly reported on Hospice Compare in summer 2019, as planned. The seven-day Hospice Visits when Death is Imminent measure will not be publicly reported at this time because it did not currently meet readiness standards for public reporting. Additional time will allow further testing to determine if changes to this measure or how it would be displayed on Hospice Compare are needed, and to ensure the measure’s accuracy and reliability as an indicator of provider quality.
