Public comments are due December 9 on a cross-setting post-acute care measure under the Improving Medicare Post-Acute Care Transformation Act of 2014 (IMPACT Act). CMS seeks:
  • Refine measure specifications
  • Identify setting-specific needs/concerns/barriers for capturing functional assessment and goal setting information using the data elements
  • Gather feedback on importance, feasibility, usability and potential impact of adding functional assessment data elements for quality measurement as new items to the OASIS item set
  • Identify additional guidance required for the implementation in home health
