IPFQR Data Preview and Correction Period Deadline Is Jan. 29

The deadline for inpatient psychiatric facilities (IPFs) to correct data on their facility-specific reports for the IPF quality reporting program (QRP) at My QualityNet is Jan. 29. In April, that data will be publicly reported for the first time through the Hospital Compare website. IPFs and distinct-part psychiatric units in acute care hospitals reimbursed under the IPF prospective payment system are eligible to participate in the IPFQRP. Hospitals also can preview their reports for the inpatient and outpatient quality reporting programs at the QualityNet website through Jan. 29.
