Session Description: 14. QUALITY REPORTING MEASURES: BEING ON THE BALL TO AVOID ANNUAL PAYMENT UPDATE (APU) PENALTIES | Elisa Bovee
How is your public profile impacting your referrals and census? Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) informed providers that Quality Reporting Program (QRP) publicly reported data is posted on Nursing Home Compare as of October 2020 and will be refreshed regularly. The data and outcomes available to the public will be expanding as we head into the future of transparency. Beyond the accessibility to this information, the Quality Reporting Program (QRP) carries a steep penalty for providers who do not meet the minimum expectations. Assessing, scoring, and reporting Functional Abilities via Minimum Data Set (MDS) 3.0 Section GG is an area that providers must understand how the coding of this section is tied to the QRP. The QRP Manual contains an intricate point system and detailed explanations of how this Measure is calculated. Join our program that will provide insight for directors and clinicians to have a deeper understanding of the Measures fueled by Section GG and the collaborations necessary with coding strategies to facilitate an accurate portrayal of the care provided.
