PART I: New Inpatient Psychiatric Facility Quality Reporting Tuesday, Aug. 21, at 2:00 p.m. ET – Register
CMS’s Inpatient Psychiatric Facility Prospective Payment System (IPF PPS) proposed rule for 2013 requires reporting for cases as of Oct. 1, 2012 — earlier than previously anticipated. The recent proposed rule includes the initiation of the Inpatient Psychiatric Facilities Quality Reporting Program (IPFQR) for freestanding psychiatric care facilities and acute care facilities with psychiatric inpatient programs that bill under the Inpatient Psychiatric Facilities Prospective Payment System (IPF PPS). Fourth quarter 2012 data and first quarter 2013 data would be reported via QNet by August 15, 2013. The potential financial impact is 2% of a facility’s APU.
When the rule is finalized, Press Ganey will host two additional webinars to review the measures in more detail and the details of the final rule. Please mark your calendar and look for more information later this summer when the new rule is announced.
