 Preview Reports and Star Rating Preview Reports for the October 2019 Home Health Compare Refresh will be delayed until early July 2019. This delay is the result of efforts to align the display of two Home Health Quality Reporting Program measures with the display in the compare sites for other post-acute care settings. As of October 2019, the measures Discharge to Community and Potentially Preventable Readmissions will include point estimates and confidence intervals, in addition to categorical data. CMS will keep the home health agency community informed with updates on the timeline for the release of the review reports.
