CMS Offers New Home Health Quality Reporting Web-Based Training Courses

Posted on Monday, February 1, 2021

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is offering two web-based training courses. The first course provides a high-level overview of how data elements within CMS patient/resident assessment instruments are used to construct quality measures (QMs) across post-acute care (PAC) settings.

The PAC settings included are those covered under the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Quality Reporting Programs (QRPs) for Home Health Agencies (HHAs), Inpatient Rehabilitation Facilities (IRFs), Long-Term Care Hospitals (LTCHs) and Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNFs). Information covered will include a short review of the QRPs’ cross- setting quality measures (QM), how data elements feed into these cross-setting QMs, how QMs are calculated and appear on QM reports and how to access and use this data for quality improvement.

The second course provides an overview of the assessment and coding of pressure ulcers/injuries. This 90-minute course is designed to be used on demand and is divided into the
following six sections, along with interactive exercises to test the learner’s knowledge related to the assessment and coding of pressure ulcers/injuries.
