Are You Surviving the IMPACT? 

October 1, 2016 is in the rear-view mirror, but that doesn’t mean that the IMPACT Act is in the past.  Quite the opposite, implementation of the IMPACT Act is just getting started.  The first wave of QRP measures added over one hundred new data collection items.   This presentation will review those measures and common pitfalls in capturing and submitting the information.  We will also discuss the strategies to ensure documentation supports the IRF-PAI submission.  Finally, we will touch on the impact of Public Reporting.

Watch to learn: 

  • Review of the CMS Quality Reporting Program
  • Considerations and solutions to successfully complete IRF-PAI v1.4, including the presence of supportive documentation.
  • Assessment and coding/scoring differences between quality indicators and Functional Independence Measures (FIM).
  • Current and future quality measures included in public reporting.
