The April 2022 quarterly refresh for the Home Health Quality Reporting Program (HH QRP) is now available on Care Compare. For this refresh, Home Health (HH) Outcome and Assessment Information Set (OASIS) measure scores are based on the standard number of quarters. The April 2022 refresh will add new OASIS-based measures for public reporting in alignment with the Improving Medicare Post-Acute Care Transformation (IMPACT) Act of 2014:
- Percent of Residents Experiencing One or More Falls with Major Injury
- Application of Percent of Long-Term Care Hospital Patients with an Admission and Discharge Functional Assessment and a Care Plan that Addresses Function
Claims-based quality measure data remains frozen following CMS decision to delay the public reporting of these measures. This delay allows time to analyze the impact of the required comprehensive exclusion of Q1 and Q2 2020 claims data on risk adjustment and reporting. CMS is targeting the July 2022 refresh of Care Compare for the resumption of HH claims-based measure updates on Care Compare. For additional information, please see the HH QRP COVID-19 Public Reporting Tip Sheet in the downloads section of the HH Quality Reporting Training webpage and the FY 2022 Hospice Wage Index and Payment Update Final Rule (HH Rider).
