CMS launches IRF, LTCH compare sites

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has launched Inpatient Rehabilitation Facility (IRF) and Long-term Care Hospitals (LTCH) compare websites to provide a snapshot of the quality of care for more than 1,100 IRFs and 420 LTCHs across the nation.

Here are the links to the new compare websites.

Facilities are asked to review their IRF and LTCH performance data for Quarter 2 of 2015 to Quarter 1 of 2016. The deadline is Jan. 10. (This timeframe of data won’t get reported until Spring 2017 on the consumer websites.)

If there are concerns with the data or further questions, please use the below link to access additional information.

As a reminder, providers will be unable to use NHSN to verify the accuracy of the HAI SIR data contained within their preview reports for the compare sites during the 30-day preview period. An alternative method must be used to calculate and verify HAI SIR data, until the NHSN system is updated by the CDC.
