Hospice Quality and Quality Reporting

The Affordable Care Act mandated quality reporting programs to be initiated by hospices to track quality information.  All Medicare certified hospices are required to submit hospital quality information to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). The current requirements consist of two components::

1. Hospice Item Set (HIS)

2. Hospice Consumer Assessment of Home Care Providers and Systems
