Inpatient Rehabilitation Facility (IRF) and Long-term Care Hospital (LTCH) Quality Reporting Program (QRP) Provider Preview Reports are now available. We encourage providers to review their performance data on each quality measure based on Quarter 2 - 2015 to Quarter 1 - 2016 data prior to public display on the IRF Compare and LTCH Compare websites in spring 2017. Providers have until the end of the 30-day preview period (January 10, 2017) to review their data. Corrections to the underlying data will not be permitted during this time. However, providers can request a CMS review during the preview period if they believe their data is inaccurate.
As a reminder, providers will be unable to use NHSN to verify the accuracy of the HAI SIR data contained within their preview reports for the Compare sites during the preview period. IRFs and LTCHs must use an alternative method to calculate and verify their HAI SIR data, until such time as the NHSN system is updated by the CDC.
