IRF Provider Preview Reports- Now Available

The Inpatient Rehabilitation Facility (IRF) Provider Preview Reports have been updated and are now available. These reports contain provider performance scores for quality measures, which will be published on Care Compare and Provider Data Catalog (PDC) during the June 2023 refresh.

The data contained within the Preview Reports are based on quality assessment data submitted by IRFs from Quarter 4, 2021 through Quarter 3, 2022. Additionally, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) measures reflect data from Quarter 3, 2021 through Quarter 2, 2022 for the Clostridium Difficile Infection (CDI) and Catheter-Associated Urinary Tract Infections (CAUTI) measures, Quarter 4, 2021 through Quarter 1, 2022 for the Healthcare Personnel (HCP) Influenza measure, and Quarter 3, 2022 for the COVID-19 Vaccination Coverage among Healthcare Personnel (HCP) measure. The data for the claims-based measures will display data from Quarter 3, 2019 through Quarter 4, 2019 and Quarter 3, 2020 through Quarter 2, 2021 for this refresh.

Providers have until April 14, 2023 to review their performance data. Only updates/corrections to the underlying assessment data before the final data submission deadline will be reflected in the publicly reported data on Care Compare. If a provider updates assessment data after the final data submission deadline, the updated data will only be reflected in the Facility-Level Quality Measure (QM) report and Patient-Level QM report. Updates submitted after the final data submission deadline will not be reflected in the Provider Preview Reports or on the Care Compare website. However, providers can request Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) review of their data during the preview period if they believe the quality measure scores that are displayed within their Preview Reports are inaccurate.
