CMS Seeks Input on Hospice Quality Program

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is seeking input from providers related to the implementation of the Hospice Quality Reporting Program (HQRP). On behalf of CMS, Health Care Innovation Services is requesting that interested providers participate in brief interviews to help CMS better understand the burdens of the HQRP, how providers ensure accuracy of data, how the HQRP has impacted patient services and outcomes, and what CMS can do in the future to improve the program and processes. 

Interviews will be conducted by telephone, and reports or supplemental documents submitted to CMS will not link answers to any specific providers. Anyone interested in participating should contact Pat Hanson at
