CMS to Release Corrected LTCH Quality Reports

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has released the long-term care hospital (LTCH) preliminary review reports, which display quality measure data calculations for LTCH quality reporting program data collected and submitted to CMS between Jan. 1 and Sept. 30, 2014. CMS discovered an error in the data displayed for the hospital associated infection measure calculations, and has removed those reports from the LTCH provider CASPER folders. They will be corrected and replaced as soon as possible.
