The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has released the updated inpatient rehabilitation facility (IRF) provider preview reports. These reports contain provider performance scores for quality measures and contain IRF-Patient Assessment Instrument (PAI) data submitted by IRFs from Quarter 4 2021 through Quarter 3 2022, as well as Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Clostridium Difficile (CDI) and Catheter-Associated Urinary Tract Infections (CAUTI) measures from Quarter 4 2021 through Quarter 1 2022 and Quarter 4 2021 through Quarter 1 2022 of the Healthcare Personnel (HCP) Influenza measure. The HCP COVID-19 Vaccination Coverage measure data for Quarter 3 2022 is also included.
Providers have until April 14, 2023, to review their performance data. Providers can request CMS review their data during the preview period if they believe the scores are inaccurate. The final reports will be published on Care Compare and Provider Data Catalog (PDC) during the June 2023 refresh of the website.
