TEP Nominations for SHR / SMR Revision

CMS is convening a Technical Expert Panel to evaluate the inclusion of prevalent comorbidities in the risk adjustment models for the Standardized Hospitalization and Standardized Mortality Ratio used in various CMS reports and programs.  The SHR and SMR already include incident comorbidities.  CMS is accepting nominations for members of the TEP until June 18, 2015.  For details see https://www.nwrn.org/files/N/SHR.TEP.pdf , which is excerpted from http://www.cms.gov/Medicare/Quality-Initiatives-Patient-Assessment-Instruments/MMS/TechnicalExpertPanels.html .
