Executive Brief Description:
On July 29, 2021, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released a final rule governing hospice payment and policy changes for fiscal year 2022 (FY2022). While there are many facets to this rule that providers will need to address at an operational level, the Hospice Quality Reporting Program (HQRP), and its new measure, the Hospice Care Index (HCI), are particularly relevant to the Medalogix Muse (Muse) product. Hospice providers that have adopted Muse will be prepared to easily support these new standards, through clinical and operational best practices facilitated by the use of the product. That’s because Muse was specifically designed to help hospice providers identify patients most likely to transition within 7-10 days, and includes features that alert the clinical care team when additional skilled visits may be beneficial.
