Updates to Home Health Compare

10/18/2017
Home Health Compare will be refreshed in October 2017 and will include the same data collection periods as the July 2017 refresh (updated July 12, 2017) for measures based on OASIS data: (https://www.medicare.gov/HomeHealthCompare/Data/Current-Data-Collection-Periods.html). 
 
The value of some OASIS-based measures may have changed slightly to reflect submission of late or corrected OASIS data. The reporting period for HH CAHPS and claims-based measures will be updated.
 
The OASIS data will reflect any revisions or corrections made by HHAs as of Friday, August 25, 2017. This change may impact individual quality measure and Quality of Patient Care Star Ratings for some agencies.
 
The table below provides applicable dates.
 
Preview reports available in CASPER August 11, 2017
Quality of Patient Care Star Rating suppression request deadline September 5, 2017
Deadline for submitting missing or corrected data August 25, 2017

This is an update from a previous Spotlight announcement on November 14, 2016. Please note that the next full update to Home Health Compare will occur in January 2018.
