On October 21, 2015, CMS is hosting a provider call to discuss the Improving Medicare Post-Acute Care Transformation (IMPACT) Act of 2014.  The call will cover:

  • Legislative requirements of the IMPACT Act related to the use of standardized data, quality measures, and resource use and other measures for skilled nursing facilities, inpatient rehabilitation facilities, long-term care hospitals, and home health agencies;
  • Participation in the quality measure and assessment instrument development process; and
  • Opportunities for stakeholder engagement and input.

CMS suggests that the call will be “more meaningful” if the audience reads the entire bill text prior to the session.  Registration is required.
