8/19 New QDFC Preview Deadline

CMS has discovered an error in the calculation of the Standardized Readmission Ratio (SRR) that affects most facilities.  The measure has been recalculated and is available for preview in your facility’s 

  • DFC: Quarterly DFC Preview for October Report  
  • DFR: FY 2017 Dialysis Facility Report 

on https://www.DialysisData.org .  The footer of these Reports will note the August 2016 production date.

Some planned readmissions were inadvertently excluded.  In the recalculation, 11% of facilities nationwide show an absolute difference in SRR of more than 0.05.  About 100 facilities changed SRR category on DFC.  Use the Comments & Inquiries tab on https://www.DialysisData.org if you have questions on the SRR recalculation.

Because of this error, the Preview Period will be extended to August 19 at 5 PM ET to allow review of the updated Reports.  The SRR information is the only change to the Reports.  Refer to https://nwrnbulletins.wordpress.com/2016/07/15/815-dfcdfr-comments-due/ for more instructions if necessary.
