Join us for an on-demand webinar to explain the proposal for reporting HBIPS measures based on CMS’s Inpatient Psychiatric Facility Prospective Payment System (IPF PPS) proposed rule for 2013. Gayle Hurt, product manager for Press Ganey, will explain what your facility will be required to report and when for cases as of Oct. 1, 2012.

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. Please contact your Quality Performance Manager to discuss how your facility can begin collecting and reporting this data.
