Hospice Compare Quarterly Refresh is Available Now

The August 2019 quarterly Hospice Compare refresh of quality data is now available. It is base on HIS quality measure results from data collected from Q4 2017 to Q3 2018, and Hospice CAHPS Survey results reported from Q4 2016 to Q3 2018.

Beginning with the August 2019 refresh, Hospice Compare will include hospice provider performance scores on the Hospice Visits when Death is Imminent three-day measure, which assesses the percentage of patients who receive at least one visit from a registered nurse, physician, nurse practitioner, or physician assistant in the last three days of life. CMS has decided not to publish Measure 2, the seven-day measure, at this time to allow further testing to determine if changes to the measure or how it would be displayed on Hospice Compare are needed
