CMS Issues Hospice Quality Updates

CMS has issued updates related to both components of the Hospice Quality Reporting Program (HQRP) – the Hospice Item Set (HIS) and the Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS).

CMS has issued three new CASPER reports for the HIS, and, in relation to the CAHPS hospice survey, a reminder that hospices must complete and submit the CAHPS Hospice Survey Vendor Authorization Form by May 1. CMS has also released a CAHPS Hospice Survey FACT Sheet and updated the FAQ page.
