PY2020 Correction on Personnel Vaccination

As part of the SNF PPS proposed rule released last week (see https://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2017-05-04/pdf/2017-08521.pdf ), CMS proposed to correct the performance period for the NHSN Healthcare Personnel Influenza Vaccination Reporting Measure for PY2020 to October 1, 2017 through March 31, 2018.  You can comment on this or other elements of the SNF PPS proposed rule at https://www.regulations.gov/document?D=CMS-2017-0060-0002 until June 26, 2017.  Contact esrdqip@cms.hhs.gov if you have any other questions or concerns.  This performance period was incorrectly specified in the CY2017 ESRD PPS final rule as October 2016 through March 2017, which was a repeat of the PY2019 period.
