SNF Readmission Measure: Top 10 Things You Should Know

Lisa Volk in Clinical & Quality

A new fact sheet is available for the Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNFs) Readmission Measure (SNFRM). The SNF Value-Based Purchasing (VBP) program ties portions of SNF payments to performance on this measure, which is calculated by assessing the risk-standardized rate of all-cause, unplanned hospital readmissions for Medicare Fee-For-Service SNF patients within 30 days of discharge from a prior proximal hospitalization. Visit the SNF VBP webpage for more information on the program.
