The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is seeking
volunteer providers to participate in e-mail or phone interviews about quality
reporting programs for:
- Long-Term Care Hospitals (LTCHs)
- Inpatient Rehabilitation Facilities (IRFs)
- Hospice Care
Speech-language pathologists who are interested should contact Health Care
Innovation Services at [email protected].
Interviews will be
conducted in the months of July and August, and a comprehensive list of
questions will be provided prior to the interview. Resulting reports will not
contain provider-specific information, such as name or location.
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA)
established that CMS implement quality reporting programs in various facilities.
The interviews are intended to assist CMS with priorities, burdens, impact on
patient services, and possible improvements with the program or process.
