Nursing Home Compare will update with April's Five Star data on May 24, 2017.
Proposed MDS item set changes for v1.16 and proposed new Skilled Nursing Facility Quality Reporting Program (SNF QRP) quality measures (QMs). If adopted data collection would begin Oct. 1, 2018.
TRAINING MATERIALS AVAILABLE for the May 2 Review and Correct Reports Provider Training – Webcast. The focus of this training is to assist providers from the following care settings in better understanding how Review and Correct Reports fit within the overall Quality Reporting Program: Skilled Nursing Facilities, Inpatient Rehabilitation Facilities, and Long-Term Care Hospitals. Additionally, this training will provide information about re-submitting data to correct errors prior to the quarterly submission deadlines to ensure the accuracy of the data which will ultimately be publicly displayed.
The final Skilled Nursing Facility Quality Reporting Program specifications for the three MDS-based quality measures adopted through the FY 2016 final rule. Data collection on these three measures begins Oct. 1, 2016. NOTE: In February 2017 CMS revised the specifications for the pressure ulcer SNF QRP QM. Those specs are now found in a separate document.
CMS created the Five-Star (5 Star) Quality Rating System to help consumers, their families, and caregivers compare nursing homes more easily. The Five-Star Quality Rating System Technical Users' Guide provides in-depth descriptions of the ratings and the methods used to calculate them. Updated January 2017.
