CMS provides two SNF QRP QM reports that provide a snapshot of facility performance data. “These reports are available on demand prior to public reporting of the measures, and providers can specify the reporting period of their choice and obtain aggregate performance data for the current and past three quarters,” explained officials. “The assessment-based reports are refreshed monthly, and the claims-based data are refreshed annually. Keep in mind that depending on the report you run, the current quarter may only have partial data.”
