Inpatient Psychiatric Facility Quality Reporting Checklists Available
Resources help with submission, verification of FFY 2019 data

New resources are available to assist providers in reporting data for the Inpatient Psychiatric Facility Quality Reporting Program. On the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Quality Reporting Center website, providers can find checklists for submission, review and verification of federal fiscal year (FFY) 2019 data and administrative requirements. The checklists provide guidance on submitting data and verifying that administrative requirements are completed via the QualityNet Secure Portal. CMS reminds providers that program data must be submitted by Aug. 15, and notes that it will contact the person on file if a facility has not submitted all necessary data. To ensure that contact information is up to date, facilities should complete the hospital contact change form. Questions should be directed to the Hospital Inpatient Value, Incentives, and Quality Reporting Outreach and Education Support Team at or (844) 472-4477.
