The Inpatient Rehabilitation Facility (IRF) Provider Preview Reports have been updated and are now available. These reports contain provider performance scores for quality measures, which will be published on Care Compare and the Provider Data Catalog during the Care Compare refresh in December 2022. For additional information, please visit the CMS IRF Quality Reporting Program (QRP) Public Reporting website. The deadline to review the information is October 17, 2022.

RCPA is looking to gather information regarding your organization’s experience with electronic data systems and is requesting your assistance. This short survey asks questions regarding systems used for Time, Attendance, and Payroll; Electronic Health Records; Service Data Collection; Medication Management; and Billing services. Our goal is that, with your responses, we will be able to provide your colleagues with this helpful information!

RCPA will only share de-identified, aggregate data with members. We will not release any individual data unless given explicit permission to do so.

Please complete the survey here.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) identified an error in the patient counts for each inpatient rehabilitation facility patient assessment instrument (IRF-PAI) measure in the March 2022 provider preview reports (which were originally issued on April 13, 2022) related to the June 2022 refresh of IRF quality data on CMS Care Compare. CMS has updated the report to apply the COVID-19 reporting exceptions to only exclude stays that occurred in Quarter 1 (Q1) and Quarter 2 (Q2) of 2020. The March 2022 provider preview reports are currently available for review until May 27, 2022. Questions about the reports should be sent by email.

Over the last several months, the Pennsylvania Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs (DDAP) has been working toward implementation of a new treatment locator resource called ATLAS® (Addiction Treatment Locator, Assessment, and Standards Platform). Pennsylvania is now currently in the data collection phase for all licensed treatment facilities to be included in ATLAS (though provider participation is not mandatory). As the deadline of January 28, 2022, approaches for completion of the Treatment Data Survey (TDS) portion of the initiative, DDAP Secretary Jennifer Smith highlights the value of this resource to treatment providers and patients. You can read Secretary Smith’s letter here.
