LTCH Provider Preview Reports Are Now Available
Published on December 31, 2019
According to an article published by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, “Long-Term Care Hospital (LTCH) Provider Preview Reports have been updated and are now available. The data contained within the Preview Reports is based on quality data submitted by LTCHs between Quarter 3 – 2018 and Quarter 2 – 2019, and reflects what will be published on LTCH Compare during the March 2020 refresh of the website. Providers have 30 days (12/9/19 to 1/9/20) to review their performance data. Corrections to the underlying data will not be permitted during this time; however, providers can request CMS review of their data during the preview period if they believe the quality measure scores that are displayed within their Preview Reports are inaccurate.
As a reminder, data for the quality measure Percent of Residents or Patients that have New or Worsened Pressure Ulcers (short stay), will continue to reflect data collected between Quarter 3 2017 – Quarter 2 2018. This data will continue to be publicly displayed until such time as the new Changes in Skin Integrity Post-Acute Care: Pressure Ulcer/Injury, is publicly displayed in fall 2020, as finalized in the FY 2018 IPPS/LTCH PPS Final Rule.
As of the March 2020 refresh, CMS will no longer publicly display the measure Percent of residents or patients who were assessed and appropriately given the seasonal influenza vaccine (short stay), as finalized in the FY 2019 IPPS/LTCH PPS Final Rule. This change is reflected in your preview reports.
LTCHs can access their preview report by logging in to iQIES at https://iqies.cms.gov/. At the main screen, select Reports; then ‘My Reports’.
