Inpatient Psychiatric Facilities Must Enroll by April 14 to Report Immunizations

Facilities participating in the Inpatient Psychiatric Facility Quality Reporting Program must enroll with the National Healthcare Safety Network by April 14 to submit data on influenza vaccination among health care personnel. Failure to do so could jeopardize a facility’s ability to submit and verify accurate measure data before the May 15 submission deadline. If a facility does not submit the required data, it could be subject to a two percentage point reduction in its fiscal year 2019 annual payment update from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.
