2019 LTPAC-Specific Quality Measures
Currently, there are no Quality Measures intentionally developed for use in the long-term/post-acute care (LTPAC) setting. While there is an initiative to develop QMs that are more reflective of the care provided in LTPAC, significant changes are not expected any time soon.
Therefore, to reduce the burden on practitioners, GEHRIMED will continue to curate an annual overview of CMS approved QMs for use in Nursing Facilities, Homecare, Assisted Living, and related places of service.
The document includes an exhaustive list of all measures based on CPT® codes – which are the only link to build a crosswalk to long-term/post-acute care (LTPAC) settings. The information is extracted from multiple CMS lists and documents and merged into a single table. The list includes the CPT® families associated with the measure and allowable reporting options.
