All Medicare-certified hospices will be required to complete and submit a Hospice Item Set (HIS) Admission record and a Hospice Item Set (HIS) Discharge record for each patient admission on or after July 1, 2014. The HIS records are submitted to the Quality Improvement and Evaluation System (QIES) Assessment Submission and Processing (ASAP) system.
Hospices that are required to submit the HIS records must register for two separate user IDs: a CMSNet User ID and a QIES User ID. Online registration applications for the CMSNet User ID and the QIES User ID are now available.
