National conference call Tuesday on IMPACT Act

Post-acute care providers should be interested in taking part in a federal conference call “Understanding the IMPACT Act — Measure Alignment and IMPACT Outcomes” starting at 2 p.m. Eastern Time on Tuesday. The hour-long event is a special Open Door Forum call run by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.

The Improving Medicare Post-Acute Care Transformation (IMPACT) Act of 2014 mandates standardized patient assessment data across post-acute care settings, including skilled nursing operations.

Call managers will explain how CMS is making quality measures and data items uniform, as well as nuances of the SNF Quality Reporting Program.

CMS would like questions for the forum submitted in advance to PACQualityInitiative@cms.hhs.gov. Slides for the call are posted here.

To listen to the call, dial (800) 837-1935 and use conference ID number 17589814.
