CMS: SNF Provider Preview Reports - Now Available

Lisa Volk and Jackie Pappalardi in Clinical & Quality

Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) Provider Preview Reports have been updated and are now available. The data contained within the Preview Reports is based on quality data submitted by SNF’s between Quarter 1-2018 and Quarter 4-2018 for assessment based quality measures, and between Quarter 4 -2016 to Quarter 3 -2018 for claims based quality measures. Providers have until September 16, 2019 to review their performance data prior to the October 2019 Nursing Home Compare site refresh, during which this data will be publicly displayed. Corrections to the underlying data will not be permitted during this time; however, providers can request CMS review of their data during the preview period if they believe the quality measure scores that are displayed within their Preview Reports are inaccurate.

CMS will be posting quality measure scores for the SNF QRP Potentially Preventable Readmissions measure for the first time during this refresh. In addition to this, CMS has updated the methodology for assigning providers to performance categories for the publicly displayed SNF QRP Discharge to Community measure for the October 2019 refresh of NH Compare and beyond.

  • For additional information on the SNF QRP Potentially Preventable Readmissions (PPR) measure, we invite you to view the SNF QRP PPR Fact Sheet and FAQ documents.
  • For additional information on the change in methodology related to the SNF QRP Discharge to Community (DTC) measure, we invite you to view the SNF QRP DTC Fact Sheet and FAQ documents.
