Error identified in Hospice Quality Report Calculations

Hospice are urged to re-run reports after CMS announced that an issue was identified and corrected with the Hospice-Level Quality Measure Report and the Hospice Patient Stay-Level Quality Measure Report. These reports are available in CASPER.

The error makes it so that:

  • Patient stays are excluded from the Hospice-Level and Patient Stay-level Quality Measure Reports


  • Patients stays are included in the Patient Stay-Level Quality Measure report but the discharge dates are not displaying. These patients aren’t counted in the Hospice-Level Quality Measure reports.

Providers are urged to rerun any reports between the implementation date of 12/18/2016 through 02/26/2017.
