DOH: Quality 2013 Pool Recalculation

Nancy Leveille and Carl Pucci in Clinical & Quality

The Department of Health (DOH) staff indicated yesterday that an issue has been discovered with the calculation of the three risk-adjusted measures, in the 2013 Quality Pool program and they have been recalculated. They also learned of an issue related to the contract/temp staff and schedule O, which also has been redone. Additional  issues have come in from NYSHFA and the other associations and the Department is also evaluating those as  part of this process. Once the full review and recalculations are  complete, DOH will be resending out the Quality Pool results again through the HCS. They are working to have this posted within the next week or so, but that timeline is not yet firm. NYSHFA will alert members as soon as the changes are distributed.

All this and other issues/concerns will be addressed, I'm hoping it will be sent to facilities next week and scores reposted on the HCS.
