The January 2022 quarterly refresh for the Home Health Quality Reporting Program is now available on Care Compare. For this refresh, Home Health (HH) Outcome and Assessment Information Set (OASIS) measure scores are based on three quarters of OASIS assessment data, due to the temporary exception to the HH Quality Reporting Program (QRP) data submission requirements in response to the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency (PHE).
Home health agencies should note that the claims-based quality measures have not been updated, as CMS has decided to continue with the data freeze for claims-based measures for an additional six months. CMS has indicated this decision will allow more 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.
