Public comments are due December 11 on a cross-setting post-acute care measure under the Improving Medicare Post-Acute Care Transformation Act of 2014 (IMPACT Act). In alignment with the CMS and National Quality Strategy (NQS) objectives and goals, the purpose of this project is to develop, maintain, re-evaluate, and implement measures reflective of quality care for PAC settings to support CMS quality missions including the LTCH QRP, IRF QRP, SNF QRP and HH QRP.
CMS seeks to obtain input on the development of the following cross-setting quality measures for use in post-acute care settings:
- Transfer of Information at Post-Acute Care Admission, Start, or Resumption of Care from Other Providers/Settings
- Transfer of Information at Post-Acute Care Discharge or End of Care to Other Providers/Settings
