Public Comment Open until June 26th for PAC Standardized Assessment Data

OASIS Answers - Thursday, May 18, 2017


The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has contracted with RAND to develop standardized assessment-based data items to meet the requirements as set forth under the IMPACT Act of 2014. If adopted, these standardized data collection items would be used in the post-acute care (PAC) settings of home health, inpatient rehabilitation facilities, long term care hospitals, and skilled nursing facilities.

As part of its data element development process, CMS requests interested parties to submit comments on the data elements that are under considered for this project. CMS is accepting public comment on data elements that meet the IMPACT Act domains of: cognitive function and mental status; medical conditions and co-morbidities; impairments; medication reconciliation; and care preferences. Information on the items under consideration can be found in the document “Development and Maintenance of Post-Acute Care Cross-Setting Standardized Assessment Data RAND IMPACT

You may submit general comments on the entire set of data elements or you may provide comments specific to individual data elements. Send your comments to impactpubliccomment@rand.org or to: RAND Corporation, 20 Park Plaza, 9th Floor, Suite 920, Boston, MA 02116. Attn: Noreen Khan, Mailstop: BN-1

Comments are due by June 26, 2017 by 11:59pm ET.
