SNF QRP Review and Correct Reports & Confidential Feedback Reports
SNF providers were recently notified of two issues affecting the SNF QRP Review and Correct Reports & Confidential Feedback Reports.
An issue was identified within the SNF Review and Correct Report, if one or more modification records are submitted for a patient stay, the most recent submitted assessment, which was accepted by the ASAP system on or prior to the submission deadline for Q1 and Q2 of CY2017, was not being used in the measure calculation.
All quality measure data has been recalculated and is now available in the SNF Quality Reporting Program report category in the CASPER Reporting application. Providers are encouraged to request the report to view updated measure results. The updated report should replace versions of the report requested prior to the issue notification.
The second issue that was identified in the technical coding, which affected our calculation of one measure contained in the SNF Review and Correct Report related to the measure Application of Percent of LTCH Patients with Admission and Discharge Functional Assessment and a Care Plan that Addresses Function, also affected the SNF QRP Confidential Feedback Report (SNF Quality Reporting Program (QRP) Quality Measure Report) is still being resolved and further guidance is forthcoming.
As a reminder, all data for assessment-based measures required in the SNF QRP in CY2017 will remain open to modifications until May 15, 2018. We anticipate that the data currently “frozen” as of August 15, 2017 to be subject to updates as of mid-September. Another notice will be issued once the Review and Correct Report Q1 2017 SNF QRP data is open again.
Further guidance and timelines has been posted to the SNF Quality Reporting Program Data Submission Deadlines webpage.
All facilities will receive an email blast notifying them of the above. We will continue to send follow-up announcements as further guidance can be given.
