CMS Releases IRF, LTCH Quality Reporting Provider Preview Reports

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has released the inpatient rehabilitation facility (IRF) and long-term care hospital (LTCH) Quality Reporting Program provider preview reports.

Performance data can be reviewed until June 30. While corrections to the underlying data will not be permitted during this time, providers can request a CMS review if they believe their data are not accurate. Providers are encouraged to review their performance data on each quality measure before the IRF and LTCH Compare websites are refreshed in September 2017, at which time this data will be publicly displayed.

More information is available on the IRF Quality Public Reporting web page and the LTCH Quality Public Reporting web page. Instructions on accessing the preview reports are attached.
