This April, CMS added six new quality measures for the Nursing Home Compare site. This gives users more ways to evaluate participating practices. Is your staff prepared?
In a press release, the organization said that Nursing Home Compare would contain twenty-four total quality measures, including the latest round. Of the new six, four specifically pertain to short-stay residents, and include both claims and MDS based measures.
With this news, claims organizations should look more closely at their processes to match the new measures. To do this, healthcare IT consultants can enforce employee education and data integrity audits, among other options.
