7/10+ PY2018 Webinar

CMS will host a July 10, 2017 webinar on ESRD QIP: Previewing Your Facility’s PY2018 Performance Data.  The Preview Period will begin July 17, when CMS will make Preview PSRs available to facilities.  These reports show the performance results that CMS will use to determine if a facility will incur a payment reduction for PY2018.  The PY2018 QIP process is described at https://www.cms.gov/Medicare/Quality-Initiatives-Patient-Assessment-Instruments/ESRDQIP/Downloads/PY-2018-Program-Details.pdf .  During the month-long Preview Period, facilities can review their measure scores and ask CMS questions about how their scores were calculated.  Facilities will also be able to submit one formal inquiry if they find or suspect an error in how their scores were calculated.  The webinar will describe the steps that dialysis facilities need to take to participate in the Preview.  Register for the webinar at https://register.gotowebinar.com/register/3216642538964021761 .
