Hospices have two new quality measures to begin collecting data for on April 1, 2017:  Hospice Visits When Death is Imminent Measure Pair and the Hospice and Palliative Care Composite Process Measure.  The HIS tool has been updated to reflect the new reporting requirements and hospices will begin using HIS version 2.00.0 with admissions and discharges after April 1.  A hospice compare website and public reporting are on schedule for implementation in summer 2017.  This webinar will address using standardized tools successfully to understand the instructions for each component of the HIS and the measure definitions.
