Hospices will be mandated-for the first time-to collect data on specific quality measures during the final calendar quarter of 2012 as part of the Hospice Quality Reporting Program. Failure by a hospice to submit the required data will result in a 2 percent reduction to that hospice’s payments during fiscal year 2014
In the June 4, 2012 Federal Register there is a notice regarding the data submission form to be used for reporting the required quality data. The Hospice Quality Reporting Program submission forms is now available, once you download the form click on “Hospice Mandatory Data Submission Form”.
