Inpatient rehabilitation facilities (IRFs) are reminded about the upcoming IRF quality reporting program (QRP) submission deadline that is quickly approaching. The IRF patient assessment instrument (PAI) data set assessment data and data submitted to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) via the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) for January 1, 2021–March 31, 2021 (Q1) are due with the submission deadline of August 16, 2021. All data must be submitted no later than 11:59 pm on August 16, 2021.
The list of measures required for this deadline is found on the CMS QRP website:
Providers are encouraged to run applicable CASPER/iQIES/NHSN analysis reports prior to each quarterly reporting deadline in order to ensure that all required data has been submitted.
Swingtech sends informational messages to IRFs that are not meeting annual payment update (APU) thresholds on a quarterly basis ahead of each submission deadline. If there are email addresses that need to be added or changed to which these messages are sent, an email should be sent here. Please include facility name and CMS Certification Number (CCN) along with any requested email updates.
