Acumen, LLC and Abt Associates Inc., which develop and refine quality measures for the Post-Acute Care (PAC) and Hospice Quality Reporting Programs (QRPs) for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), are convening a technical expert panel (TEP) to evaluate the measurement sets across a number of settings: Inpatient Rehabilitation Facility (IRF), Long-Term Care Hospital (LTCH), Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF), Home Health (HH), and Hospice, with a focus on identifying measurement gaps and ensuring measures align with CMS program requirements and goals.
CMS will use this to inform new measure development and maintenance of PAC and Hospice quality measures. Selected nominees can expect to be contacted on an annual or as-needed basis for up to five years. The TEP nomination period closes October 11, 2023, at 5 p.m. ET. If you wish to nominate yourself or other individuals for consideration, please visit the web posting on the CMS Technical Expert Panels: Currently Accepting Nominations page for more information.
