June 3, 2019, NAHC Report 


Hospice provider preview reports and Hospice Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS®) Survey ® provider preview reports have been updated and are now available. These two separate reports are available in your Certification and Survey Provider Enhanced Reports (CASPER) non-validation reports folder.


Hospice providers are encouraged to review their Hospice Item Set (HIS) quality measure results from Quarter 4, 2017 to Quarter 3, 2018 and their facility-level CAHPS® survey results from Quarter 4, 2016 to Quarter 3, 2018. Specifically, the following 9 HIS quality measures will be included:

  1. Hospice and Palliative Care Composite Process Measure – Comprehensive Assessment at Admission (NQF #3235)
  2. Patients Treated with an Opioid who are Given a Bowel Regimen (NQF #1617)
  3. Pain Screening (NQF #1634)
  4. Pain Assessment (NQF #1637)
  5. Dyspnea Screening (NQF #1639)
  6. Dyspnea Treatment (NQF #1638)
  7. Treatment Preferences (NQF #1641)
  8. Beliefs/Values Addressed (if desired by the patient) (NQF #1647)
  9. Hospice Visits when Death is Imminent – NEW! 


Providers have 30-days to review their HIS and CAHPS® results (May 30, 2019 through July 1, 2019) prior to the August 2019 Hospice Compare site refresh, during which this data will be publicly displayed.
